Neato Litany

|

The Litany of the Three Patrons, one of many Litanies found here, link courtesy of these kids.

The patrons? Our Lady of Consolation, St. Augustine and St. Monica. This makes my day. I've long wanted to create a Litany to Augustine, and here one is!

Our Lady of Consolation
St. Augustine (Feastday August 28th)
St. Monica (Feastday August 27th)

Lord, have mercy on us.

I told my wife about the Litany and who the patrons were. Her response: "What is it the "Litany for Rotten Children?"
