In a previous post I presented the Sacred Heart devotion and included a link to the Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
A reader contacted me about the litany, so I decided to share it for June.
Each October the Church in the United States celebrates Respect Life Month, and the first Sunday of October is observed as Respect Life Sunday. As Catholics, we are called to cherish, defend, and protect those who are most vulnerable, from the beginning of life to its end, and at every point in between. During the month of October, the Church asks us to reflect more deeply on the dignity of every human life (Respect Life).
In honor of Respect Life Month I’d like to share a prayer from the Sisters of Life, a religious order whose mission is to protect and enhance the sacredness of human life.
Humble yourselves before the Lord and he will exalt you (James 4:10).
I’d like to share a simple and important prayer: the Litany of Humility.
“Christians should follow the example of the most holy Virgin Mary because Jesus Himself gave her to us as our Mother. He has pointed to her as the model we should follow. It is, in fact, a natural thing that children should have hearts like their mothers and should reflect their mothers’ goodness and virtues.” ~ St. Paul VI
The month of May is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Roman Catholic Church.
As we approach Mother’s Day, I want to share a beautiful prayer that honors our Blessed Mother.
The month of January is dedicated to the Holy Name of Jesus.
Today, January 3rd we observe the Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus.
Below is a beautiful prayer known as the Litany of the Holy Name of Jesus.
