Today, we have the liturgical memorial of Pius V, pope and friar in the Order of Preachers.

Elected to the Chair of Saint Peter he renewed with great mercy and apostolic vigor, according to the decrees of the Council of Trent, the divine worship of the Latin Church plus gave new life to Christian morality and the ecclesiastical discipline and promoted the propagation of faith.

May St. Pius V intercede for us today and always.
