Litanies are a well established form of prayer, but are often forgotten. There are a great many of varying authenticity in circulation, but only six are officially approved by the Church for public use. This booklet explains the origins, history and value of litanies and includes the complete texts of approved litanies, including a selection of other respected and well-known litanies for private use. A suggested calendar of litanies helps the reader to pray them throughout the year.
