The Sorrowful Hail Mary
Blessed Pope Pius IX
The Church celebrates the Feast of the Immaculate Conception (when Mary was conceived free from original sin) on 8th of December, exactly nine months before celebrating the Nativity of Mary.
Grant, We Beseech Thee, O Lord God, unto us thy Servants, that we may rejoice in continual health of mind and body; and, by the glorious intercession of blessed Mary ever Virgin be delivered from the present sadness, and enter into the joy of thine eternal gladness. Through Christ our Lord, Amen.

“Hail, holy throne of God, divine sanctuary, house of glory, jewel most fair, chosen treasure house, and mercy seat for the whole world, heaven showing forth the glory of God. Purest Virgin, worthy of all praise, sanctuary dedicated to God and raised above all human condition, virgin soil, unplowed field, flourishing vine, fountain pouring out waters, virgin bearing a child, mother without knowing man, hidden treasure of innocence, ornament of sanctity, by your most acceptable prayers, strong with the authority of motherhood, to our Lord and God, Creator of all, your Son who was born of you without a father, steer the ship of the Church and bring it to a quiet harbor”
St. Germanus on the Presentation of the Mother of God
October 7th, Our Lady of the Rosary
The feast of the Holy Rosary was instituted by Pope Pius V to celebrate the anniversary of the defeat of the Turkish fleet at the battle of Lepanto on the first Sunday in October 1571, which ended the threat of Muslim domination of the Mediterranean and was ascribed in part to the prayers and processions of the Rosary confraternity in Rome. Later the feast was moved to the fixed date of 7 October.
And the temple of God was opened in heaven: and the ark of his testament was seen in his temple, and there were lightnings, and voices, and an earthquake, and great hail. And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars: And being with child, she cried travailing in birth, and was in pain to be delivered. Apocalypse 11:19-12:1
