Feast Day "Our Lady of the Rosary"

Postby pilgrim-seeker_tom » Sat Oct 07, 2017 1:45 am

Few people are aware of the genesis of the Feast Day ... "Our Lady of the Rosary".

It is the fruit of a Clash of Civilizations ... West vs East ... the Battle of Lepanto fought off the shores of Greece. Some argue it triggered a seismic shift in the flow of history ... leading to the world we know today.

Begs the question ... are we witnessing the same Clash of Civilizations today? ... Will the outcome be the same? ... a seismic shift in the flow of human history?

These cultural 'shifts' have happened periodically throughout history, and yes.. I do also feel it is happening again.

Agreed ... the generation of people who witness a seismic shift have no idea how long such shift was in gestation ... nor any knowledge of underlying connections between these seismic shifts across time and space.

Reminds me of a few words I heard many years ago ... knowledge is power until someone else learns it ... at which point your perceived power is !@#$%^.
