The Feast of Our Lady Help of Christians has been celebrated in Australia since 1844. Pope Pius VII was imprisoned by Napoleon Bonaparte at Fontainbleu. The military eventually forced Bonaparte to release the Pope and on May 24th 1814, Pope VII was able to return to Rome. As a form of thanksgiving, he decreed that the feast of Mary Help of Christians be celebrated on May 24th.
“Days of prayer, and formerly also of fasting, instituted by the Church to appease God’s anger at man’s transgressions, to ask protection in calamities, and to obtain a good and bountiful harvest… The Rogation Days are the 25th April, called Major (organised by Gregory the Great), and the three days before the Feast of the Ascension, called Minor (established by St.Mamertus – 522AD).”
