The Litany of the Saints as sung in Rome on April 4, 2005

Kyrie, eleison. Christe, eleison. Christe, audi nos. Christ, hear us. Christe, exaudi nos. Christ, graciously hear us.


Litany of the Saints

It is a prayer to the Triune God , which also includes invocations for the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary , the Angels and all the martyrs and saints upon whom Christianity was founded, and those recognised as saints through the subsequent history of the church. Following the invocation of the saints, the Litany concludes with a series of supplications to God to hear the prayers of the worshippers. The litany is published in five sections. The first contains a short series of invocations of God, beginning with a threefold Kyrie , followed by invocations of God the Father of Heaven, the Son who redeemed the world, the Holy Spirit , and the Holy Trinity. The second section lists the saints who are to be included, given in the following order. Within each category, men are listed in chronological order, followed by women, also in chronological order. Distinctive names are given in brackets so the cantor knows which saint is intended, but a directive notes that the bracketed names may be omitted when the Latin is sung.


All Saints’ Day – Litaniae Sanctorum

A litany, from the Latin litania , in turn from the Greek lite , meaning prayer or supplication, is structured as a series of short invocations with a common theme. The model for litanies is Psalm which is, for the most part, a recasting of Psalm in the litany format. In the psalm, a large part is comprised of a listing of various actions the Lord has taken. It serves as praise for the Lord's actions from Genesis to the then current state of Israel's history. For each line of the psalm, there is a repeated ending: "God's love endures forever" as used in the New American Bible; in other translations: "for his mercy endures forever". Among the listed actions, the psalm notes that God "has done great wonders, skillfully made the heavens, spread the earth upon the waters, made the great lights…struck down the firstborn of Egypt, led Israel from their midst…swept Pharaoh and his army into the Red Sea, led the people through the desert, struck down great kings…freed us from our foes, and gives food to all flesh.
