What Is the Common Element Here??

Courtesy of Badger Catholic we are reminded of three Catholic feast days:

  • August 6, The Transfiguration of Christ, was extended to the Universal Church by Pope Calixtus III to celebrate legendary Hungarian general J├ínos Hunyadi’s victory over the Turks at Belgrade in 1456. This feast has great significance for Orthodox and Eastern Rite Catholic churches.
  • September 12, the Holy Name of Mary, celebrates the victory of John Sobieski and his Polish warriors over the Ottoman Turks at the gates of Vienna in 1683.
  • October 7, In thanksgiving for the victory at the Battle of Lepanto on the first Sunday(eventually a fixed feast on Oct 7) of October 1571, Pope St. Pius V ordered that a commemoration of the Rosary should be made on that day.  
See if you can notice the common element--and it is not "Turks" (which is a whitewash of the real enemy.....which was then and remains now an Invasive Species.....)

Will the Catholic Church have a feast day honoring the defeat of Mohammedan Terrorism??
