Litany of Humility

Rafael Cardinal Merry del Val

O Jesus! meek and humble of heart, Hear me.


From the desire of being esteemed, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the desire of being loved, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the desire of being extolled, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the desire of being honored, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the desire of being praised, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the desire of being preferred to others, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the desire of being consulted, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the desire of being approved, Deliver me, Jesus.

From the fear of being humiliated, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the fear of being despised, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the fear of suffering rebukes, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the fear of being calumniated, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the fear of being forgotten, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the fear of being ridiculed, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the fear of being wronged, Deliver me, Jesus.
From the fear of being suspected, Deliver me, Jesus.

That others may be loved more than I, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.
That others may be esteemed more than I, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.
That, in the opinion of the world, others may increase and I may decrease,Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.
That others may be chosen and I set aside, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.
That others may be praised and I unnoticed, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.
That others may be preferred to me in everything, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.
That others may become holier than I,
provided that I may become
as holy as I should, Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.


Closing Prayer

Dominicus Gabriel Mariae


O most gracious Lord Jesus:
To redeem an undeserving humanity
You gave up everything you had.

In your mercy, grant us the grace
of despising all things but you
and your love

That we may know the joy
you brought to us
through your dolorous Passion
and Death,

Who live and reign in might and bliss
with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
One God, in everlasting glory.

Thank you. I’m in. I’ve been accused of things that are not true, and it hurts.

Thank you for the opportunity. Sometimes the discussions on the net (used to be called “the news”) become so worrisome it is necessary to hear a soft word to turn away the wrath that so easily overcomes us.

Would you like to be on the Seaman Anoreth ping list? She’s in Singapore right now, but she hasn’t done anything very interesting there.

I’m in. From the heart. Thank you for sending this. I ask forgiveness from anybody I have offended because of my lack of insight, lack of patience, irascibility, etc (where’s that thesaurus of faults??!)

May I ask you -—PLEASE!-— to re-send this to us for the next 9 days? I don’t want to forget to pray this prayer, but I’m so thud-headed...

What’s the emoticon for thud-headed? =:^}

The Eastern Rites and Lutherans pray Psalm 141 daily as part of the service of Evening Prayer (Vespers).

“Set a watch before my mouth, O Lord, and guard the door of my lips”.

In a cyber age we would do well to consider that verse before hitting the “send” or “post” buttons!

“Set a watch before my fingers, O Lord”.

Are you saying you want to be pinged for nine days?

Oh and if you’re the pinging kind, I’d appreciate a ping too!

Great suggestion. There is also this:

A Prayer before Logging onto the Internet (April 4th: The Feast of St. Isidore of Seville)

That’s excellent.

I am trying to make a pinglist of everyone who posts favorably, and unless I get asked NOT to, I will ping everyone every day.

I’m reading Atlas Shrugged for our holiday weekend camping. I just printed out the Litany and I’ll put it in my book to pray every morning.

I can do this for a novena. Might I recommend adding this as well:

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury,pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen
