October 7 marks the celebration of another Marian feast, that of Our Lady of The Rosary. To celebrate this important event Discount Catholic Products, a leading online Catholic store, pays homage to the Blessed Virgin with an online coupon code.
“Discount Catholic Products boasts an extensive collection of rosaries, prayer cards, devotional medals, scapulars, Catholic books, art and music, among many other religious gifts and keepsakes,” says Kristen Padula, spokesperson for the Company. “Our online coupon code intentionally falls just prior to the Feast of Our Lady of The Rosary so we can help customers find affordable and high-quality religious items that will enrich their spiritual lives.”
The Feast of Our Lady of The Rosary began in 1571 as the Feast of Our Lady of Victory. The day was initially chosen to commemorate the victory at the Battle of Lepanto, the decisive battle between European and Turkish forces when the Turks were on a European conquest. The victory was attributed to the fact that Pope Pius V called for all Catholics to pray the rosary and held special processions around Rome on the day of the battle. Pope Pius V ordered the commemoration as the Feast of Our Lady of Victory. His successor Pope Gregory XIII changed the name to honor the role the rosary played in the battle, and in 1573 he mandated all churches possessing an altar dedicated to the rosary keep the Feast. In 1671 the entirety of the Latin Rite began to observe the Feast on the papal order of Clement X, and in 1716 Pope Clement XI declared the first Sunday of October the Feast of Our Lady of The Rosary, to be celebrated by the Universal Church. In 1913 Pope Pius X fixed the date to October 7.
To commemorate this religious occasion, Discount Catholic Products is offering over 700 of their rosaries and rosary chaplets on sale to customers across the US. Discount Catholic Products suggests purchasing items as gifts for family and friends, or to bolster a customer’s own life in God. This online coupon code runs until October 7 and entitles customers to up to $25 off orders of $100 or more.
“We are proud to help augment the spiritual lives of our customers,” states Ms. Padula. “We like being the go-to online store for Catholic gifts and keepsakes when Catholics need a religious item to commemorate an occasion in their lives, hence our huge selection of sale items for the Feast of Our Lady of The Rosary.”
In the months to come, more can be expected from Discount Catholic Products’ ever-growing collection of Catholic gifts and keepsakes.
