Our Morning Offering – 3 January – The Litany of the Most Holy Name of Jesus

Our Morning Offering – 3 January – “Month and Feast of the Most Holy Name of Jesus”

The Litany of the Most Holy Name of Jesus received the Church’s approval for private use by Pope Sixtus V in 1585, and public recitation by Pope Leo XIII in 1886. It is one of only six litanies approved for public use.
When this litany is prayed publicly, the congregation’s responses to a leader appear in italics below.

O Lord Jesus Christ,
Who hast said:
Ask and ye shall receive,
seek and ye shall find,
knock and it shall be opened unto you;
mercifully attend to our supplications
and grant us the gift of Thy divine charity,
that we may ever love Thee
with our whole heart
and with all our words and deeds
and may never cease from praising Thee.
Make us, O Lord, to have a perpetual fear
and love of Thy holy Name,
for Thou never failest to help
and govern those whom
Thou dost bring up
in Thy steadfast fear and love.
Who livest and reignest for ver and ever.
Amen.
