Litany of Saints – A Halloween Suggestion



There have been a lot great Halloween/All Saints suggestions in the comments for “Top Ten Ways to Have a Catholic Halloween.” Here’s another devotion that you might want to include in your All Hallows festivities: the Litany of the Saints. My family prays a Litany of the Saints every evening and we include our patron saints and out family saints. Below, you’ll find the full Litany of Saints in both Latin and English.

 As for me, I am poor and in misery: * help me, O God.
7  Thou art my helper, and my redeemer: * O Lord, make no delay.

Let us pray.          Collects
O God, whose nature and property is ever to have mercy and to forgive : receive our humble petitions ; and though we be tied and bound by the chain of our sins, yet let the pitifulness of thy great mercy loose us.

Almighty and everlasting God, we beseech thee to have compassion upon N., our Pope, and by thy mercy govern him in the way of everlasting life : that, being endued with thy grace, he may ever seek those things that are pleasing unto thee, and with his whole strength perform the same.
Deus, a quo sancta desidéria, recta consília et justa sunt ópera : da servis tuis illam, quam mundus dare non potest, pacem ; ut et corda nostra mandátis tuis dédita, et, hóstium subláta formídine, témpora sint, tua protectióne, tranquílla.
O God, from whom all holy desires, all good counsels, and all just works do proceed : give unto thy servants that peace which the world cannot give ; that our hearts may be set to obey thy commandments, and also that by thee we being defended from the fear of our enemies may pass our time in rest and quietness.
Ure igne Sancti Spíritus renes nostros et cor nostrum, Dómine : ut tibi casto córpore serviámus, et mundo corde placeámus.
Grant, O Lord, we pray thee, that the fire of thy Holy Spirit may in such wise cleanse our reins and our hearts : that we serving thee in pureness both of body and soul may be found an acceptable people in thy sight.

O God, the Creator and Redeemer of all them that believe : grant unto the souls of thy servants and handmaidens the remission of all their sins ; that, as they have ever desired thy merciful pardon, so by the supplications of their brethren they may receive the same.
Actiónes nostras, quæsumus, Dómine, aspirándo prævéni et adjuvándo proséquere : ut cuncta nostra orátio et operátio a te semper incípiat et per te cœpta finiátur.
Prevent us, O Lord, in all our doings with thy most gracious favour, and further us with thy continual help : that in all our works begun, continued, and ended in thee, we may glorify thy holy Name, and finally by thy mercy obtain everlasting life.
Omnípotens sempiterne Deus, qui vivórum domináris simul et mortuórum, omniúmque miseréris quos tuos fide et ópere futúros esse prænóscis : te súpplices exorámus ; ut, pro quibus effúndere preces decrévimus, quosque vel præsens sæculum adhuc in carne rétinet vel futúrum jam exútos córpore suscépit, intercedéntibus ómnibus Sanctis tuis, pietátis tuæ cleméntia, ómnium delictórum suórum véniam consequántur.  Per Dóminum nostrum Jesum Christum, Fílium tuum, qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti, Deus, per ómnia sæcula sæculórum.
R.  Amen.
Almighty and everlasting God, who hast dominion both of the quick and the dead, who likewise hast mercy upon all men, whom by reason of their faith and works thou hast foreknown : we commend unto thee all those for whom we now do offer our prayers, whether in this world they still be held in the bonds of the flesh, or being delivered therefrom have passed into that which is to come ; beseeching thee that at the intercession of all thy Saints they may of thy bountiful goodness obtain the remission of all their sins.  Through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord : Who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.
R.  Amen.
V.  Dóminus vobíscum.

R.  Amen.
V.  Et fidélium ánimæ † per misericórdiam Dei requiéscant in pace.
R.  Amen.
V.  The Lord be with you.
R.  And with thy spirit.
V.  May the Almighty and Merciful Lord graciously hear us.
R.  Amen.
V.  And may the souls of the faithful departed, † through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
R.  Amen.

    Wow, your family says the litany every day?  That’s great!  What’s your secret?  I could barely get my wife to say a rosary once a year with me.

    What a great idea.  I may not be able to get to Mass on All Saints, it’s not a Holiday of Obligation here in Canada and I live in a small town with Mass only on Sundays but I watch the daily televised Mass and I will say the Litany.  I have an old Missal with all the litanies in it.  It comes in very handy.
