The Litany of St. Mary Magdalene

Magdalene's Tibia


In honor of the completion of our novena to St. Mary Magdalene, and in thanksgiving for the incredible grace offered to us in the chance to honor her relics, we wanted to post this Litany of St. Mary Magdalene. Pray it with us, and thanks for saying this novena with us too.

May the glorious merits of blessed Mary Magdalen, we beseech Thee, O Lord,
make our offerings acceptable to Thee, for Thine only-begotten Son vouchsafed
graciously to accept the humble service she rendered. We ask this through Him
Who liveth and reigneth with Thee and the Holy Ghost, God forever and ever.
R. Amen.

May the prayers of blessed Mary Magdalen help us, O Lord, for it was in answer to them
that Thou didst call her brother Lazarus, four days after death, back from the grave to life, Who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, Unity in Trinity,
world without end.
R. Amen.
