A Litany to Our Lady
August 22, 2023
Dear Family of Mary!
St. John Eudes fostered great devotion to the hearts of Jesus and Mary, and wrote many litanies to Our Lady. I love to read litanies slowly and let the salutations and petitions really penetrate my heart. We have so much to receive from Our Lady! Let’s not hurry in our prayer!!
