Litany of January 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 prepare for this coming Lent early next month? What follows is a litany to all of the saints whose feast days are celebrated in the month of January. Many of these saints are little-known and often are not, for that reason, invoked in our prayers.

       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 January.

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.
Jesus Christ, King of glory, to whom the noblest of kings bowed their knees to Thee, have mercy on us
O Most Holy Name of Jesus, have mercy on us.
Holy Mary, Mother of God pray for us.
