Today is great day for the Holy League as it marks the feast day of Pope St. Pius V. “During his papacy (1566-1572), Pius V was faced with the almost overwhelming responsibility of getting a shattered and scattered Church back on its feet. The family of God had been shaken by corruption, by the Reformation, by the constant threat of Turkish invasion … Only at the last minute was he able to organize a fleet which won a decisive victory in the Gulf of Lepanto, off Greece, on October 7, 1571” (

This year marks the 444th anniversary of that great battle, and a moment in time that turned our Church and world around and back to our Lord. In so many ways, today, we are facing a similar call to get a “shattered and scattered Church back on its feet.” This begins by organizing a league of men who are ready to do battle against the many forces contrary to the will of God. But first, we must be battle ready; we must “put on the full armor of God” (Eph. 6:11), which means we need holy men in a “state of grace.”

Please plan to join us in this movement to gather this Holy League of men! Go to[1]

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us!

Pope St. Pius V, pray for us!
