October 7 is the feast day of Our Lady of the Rosary, also known as Our Lady of Victory. This feast day commemorates a victory at sea to fend off Turkish invaders in the 16th century. Europeans were encouraged to pray the rosary to avoid invasion. Pope St. Pius V attributed the victory to the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary afterwards.
This is a good day to learn more about the rosary and to pray a rosary.
