Litany of Holy Name

An old and popular form of prayer in honor of the Name of Jesus. The author is not known.  At the request of the Carmelites, Pope Sixtus V (1585-90) granted an indulgence of 300 days for its recitation. Though this was an implied recognition of the litany, requests made in 1640, 1642, and 1662, for formal approval were rejected. In 1862 Pius IX approved one of the formularies in use, and attached an indulgence of 300 days for the faithful of the dioceses whose bishops had made special application. Pope Leo XIII on Jan. 16, 1886 extended the privilege to the entire world.

Let us pray:
Lord Jesus Christ, You have said, "Ask and you shall receive; seek and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened to you"; mercifully attend to our supplications, and grant us the grace of Your most divine love, that we have love You with all our hearts, and in all our words and actions, and never cease to praise You.

Make us, O Lord, to have a perpetual fear and love of Your holy name, for You never fail to govern those whom You establish in Your love. You, Who live and reign forever and ever
. Amen
