This is a somewhat abridged/alternative version of the most famous litany of the Church, the Litany of the Saints. While creating the video I have not included lyrics, as it is quite easy to understand what is being chanted and uses simple and oft repeated words which even a beginner can follow. Instead, I have included several art works, that depict the Saints. The great men and women of God, who have lived and died in His grace, are always there to intercede for us and to be our loving role models. Not only those mentioned by name in this version, or in other versions of the prayer, but all the Saints of God, please pray for us!
I made this video in tribute to those who leave the pleasures of world and self, in order to follow the contemplative and/or active life in God. Sadly, the orders of mendicants, monks and nuns have greatly decreased in number in the past century, due to the dramatic return of secular hedonism. I hope this video will awaken some desire for spiritual growth in all of us; we all need to give our selves entirely to God, whether cleric or layman. The music is Paradisi Portae.
