Litany of November Saints

    Editor's Note: The following is a follow-up to an original concept submitted by Jacob Michael as a follow-up to his article Assisting in the Restoration. Need a little extra devotional prayer to add to your daily Rosary? Need some impetus to pray for the Holy Souls in Purgatory? What follows is a litany to all of the saints whose feast days are celebrated in the month of November. Many of these saints are little-known and often are not, for that reason, invoked in our prayers. Just as almost all in Purgatory are forsaken today by the post-conciliar church.

       If you add this short litany to your daily Rosary, you will have the benefit of invoking the prayers of some of these lesser-known saints for November.

Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy, Christ, hear us. Christ, graciously hear us.
God the Father of Heaven, have mercy on us.
God the Son, Redeemer of the world, have mercy on us.
God the Holy Ghost, have mercy on us.
Holy Trinity, one God, have mercy on us.
Christ the King of glory and Crown of all saints, have mercy on us
Holy Mary, pray for us.
All the Saints in Heaven, pray for us*
