Litany of March Saints

    Editor's Note: Need a little extra devotional prayer to add to your daily Rosary? Need some impetus to add to devotions during Lent? What follows is a litany to all of the saints whose feast days are celebrated in the month of March. Many of these saints are little-known and often are not, for that reason, invoked in our prayers. Those pictured are those celebrated in the Traditional Liturgy in purple. Those saints whose traditional feasts are historical only are in blue below. For obvious reasons, St. Patrick is in green.

       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 March.
