Litany of the Holy Names of Jesus, All Mercy

Albert-cc

Elizabeth Scalia - published on 08/30/17

Christ, in all your names and forms, have mercy on us, the sinners.

The headlines are terrible. Everywhere you look there are natural disasters, political and social unrest, a sense of disorientation and of things spiraling out of control. Often when we pray we feel less and less certain of how to pray — the words come jumbled, or fail outright.

Interiorly, we cry out, “Lord, help! Have mercy!” The less mannerly among us might add, “We’re crying ‘Uncle’ over here!”

Which is another way of saying “Have mercy on me.” Or, “Have mercy on us, and on the whole world!”

It’s a good prayer.

Recently at Adoration, those sentiments, brought before Christ Jesus, Truly Present, poured out in a ragtag sort of litany that seemed to combine the Jesus Prayer and the words of the Divine Mercy prayer, words from both of which I used interchangeably throughout, inhaling with the Name, exhaling with the plea for mercy.

It was a calling out for mercy to the Holy Name, in all of its forms and varieties, and it was simple, but it led into a deep sense of contemplation and consolation. Perhaps it will for you, as well.
