Prayer is very powerful and can shake the whole house just as it did at the first Pentecost. Enter prayer through humility.
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!
Sin is a grain of sand next to the mountain of Christ mercy. Humility is the power in the kingdom of God.
Fr. Angelo preaches on the Gospel for today where Our Lord goes to His home town of Nazareth where He is not given the same honor he received elsewhere. Father exhorts us to charitably, humbly speak up and give good example when it is needed even if we do not expect a warm welcome.
