Not that long ago, I posted about my newly formed playlist of what I call “Go-To Hymns”—songs that are easy to sing along with and can be used easily for prayer services when a pastoral musician or song leader is not present and if you are not comfortable leading song. It occurred to me recently that another piece of music that should be a part of every Catholic playlist is a Litany of Saints. Talk about something that is easy to sing! I think most of us can remember the words “pray for us!”
There are several versions of a Litany of Saints available. I prefer this one and added it to my playlist: “Litany of Saints” by John D. Becker.
If you’re looking for the more traditional Litany of Saints, try this one: “Litany of Saints” by the Schola Cantorum of St. Peter the Apostle.
Joe Paprocki, DMin, is a major contributor to Finding God, the faith formation program for grades 1-8 based in Ignatian spirituality.
And if you are looking for one that will make people of all ages smile, tap their toes and sing along, celebrating the joy of the Saints, holy men and women, try this one by Rory Cooney: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kAEo_qCS9Yg
I clicked and the link says there is no video at that youtube address.
