The Battle of Lepanto, October 7, 1571 ~ At the end of the Crusades, Catholic naval forces, in a battle with Muslim forces, were at a decided disadvantage in numbers and resources. Knowing the odds for victory were poor, St. Pope Pius V requested all of Europe to pray the rosary. While performing his duties in the Vatican miles away from battle, the good Pope is said to have suddenly stood up at the moment of victory, gone over to a window and exclaimed, “The Christian fleet is victorious!” while shedding tears of gratitude to God. Through the power of the rosary, the Catholic forces soundly defeated the Muslim Turks. In another point of interest, Admiral Andrea Doria commanding the Catholic forces carried a small image of Our Lady of Guadalupe into battle.

The crucifix from the ship of Don Juan of Austria in The Battle of Lepanto. The oncoming Moslem Turks shot a cannon at it and the Corpus miraculously swerved to the right, avoiding the shot, and stayed that way ever since. This treasure is venerated at The Cathedral of San Eulalia in Barcelona, Spain.

    The naval battle of Lepanto had nothing to do with the Crusades. The Crusades ended in the 12th Century. The naval battle of Lepanto marked the high water mark of Turkish expansion in Europe. It was a naval engagement in the war between the Hapsburg empire and the Ottoman empire.

      The article stated ” at the end of the crusades”, not during the crusades.
