Even I slip up when I ask Jesus to pray for me. I quickly correct by saying something like "have mercy" instead.

Let's just all thank God that the "church rock" movement hasn't affected the Catholic Church. I don't know what the Pope would do in that case.

@MrBatti993 The true litany of the saints is in our hearts.
m173627 (7 years ago)
@MrBatti993 A litany is a prayer with a recurring formula, and a prayer can be in any language. There's nothing wrong with an English litany
djayq (7 years ago)
This version of the Litany of Saints is not the original as one has already pointed out. As beautiful as it sounds, I think it's too bad that a more modern rendition - one that breaks up the litany and actually lengthens it - is being preferred to the traditional version, and in the presence of the Pope himself!
djayq (7 years ago)
@ticketoutofhere The first part of the litany is actually supposed to be a repeat of each invocation (e.g., v. Lord have mercy, r. Lord have mercy, v. Christ have mercy, r. Lord have mercy, etc.).

@JoshuaPadraig92 Pope Pius X saved the most jews. You know the person who pointed his finger at Pope Pius was German. Coincidence? Not in a million years.

@ivanenrile Most people have no idea that the Protestant Church has a much higher percentage of this then the Catholic Church. We are just attacked because we are the largest Christian sect in the world. Over a billion and growing.

I remeber this day! I got to celebrate my birthday at the seminary with the Pope! Not as good as the rapping Franciscans that day, but hey, I'll let this slide. lol Anyway, brings back a really good memory.

True enough. But this error I am sure is innocent, and it does not detract me from enjoying this beautiful performance and prayerful, powerful moment in 16's visit to the USA>
blunt1984 (9 years ago)
I watched this on EWTN live that year! I even took off work to see the Pope, even though I couldn't make it to NY or DC in person, I was still there in spirit! Thanks for posting. God Bless
tdworak (9 years ago)
This is simply a beautiful moment from a holy pope reaching out to a beleagured but soon-to-be-resurgent American Catholic Church. You will know a holy Mass by one thing, and that is reverence for the Eucharist. Don't worry about Latin, non-Latin, Tridentine, Novis Ordum (sp) et. al. Look to the Eucharist and if he is being worshipped with great love and faith. This is how we will always recognize a true Catholic Mass. And heed of Mother Teresa and reject Holy Communion in the hand!
Matthew Coakley (9 years ago)
Personally I wish the five Patriarchs would reconcile their differences and unite once more as it was in the 1st-4th centuries. Constantinople, Antioch, Alexandria, Jerusalem, and Rome Orthodox and Catholic united as simply, the church once more.
Matthew Santucci (9 years ago)
First of all it is not a service it is the mass. And the usual Catholic Mass is much more reverend and orthodox nothing like this.
Frank Arnou (9 years ago)
I love the tradition in Latin also, but in Belgium we "mix"it sung in Latin, and Dutch.

Just Lovely-thank you,play this when I am worried,will leave a candle for you at the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham in Norfolk on Sunday. David
You still don't get it. Your own bishops and popes do not hold that Protestants are damned, any more than they hold that the Greek Orthodox communion is damned. What you are trying to force upon us here is the opposite to that which the supreme teaching authority of your own communion has clearly said. Hence the Pope meeting with the Archbishop of Canterbury in friendship and fellowship - sharing in worship etc.
Protestants also believe that outside the Church there is no salvation. The brilliant Calvin was quite adamant about this point. However, as I said, read what Pope Benedict XVI has written in his encyclical "Dominus Iesus", and the Second Vatican Council declared in "Unitatas Redintegratio" regarding the way in which this term applies to Protestants. Once again, you are in disagreement with your own bishops and the reigning Pope. This means you are not in conformity with your own leaders.
Then you are not in communion with your own bishops and pope, who have unequivocally stated that Protestants are "separated bretheren" who have high regard for the Word of God, and are saved. The majority of Roman Catholics would not agree with you on this. It is in fact yourself who is out-of-step with the beliefs of most of your church.
My answer to this question would be: the same authority as that of all the other Apostles who also healed people - the authority of God.
There is no evidence of the spirit of Christ in this post. Makes a very poor advertisement for whatever it is that you believe if it has not engendered in you some measure of self-restraint. Should not Christians speak of atheists with prayerfulness and charity, in the perpetual hope of their conversion? Speaking of unbelievers as "losers" is not something I hope I would ever do.
musico747 (9 years ago)
Well, can I ask you about St. Peter in Acts? On whose authority was he acting upon when he healed all those people?
Nick Brady (9 years ago)
What's with you? ps1019 is practically praying for you, and all you're doing is throwing it back in his face! You should be on your knees begging God for forgiveness for that disgusting mouth of yours! If you have no respect for the gracious people on this video, then go soak it up with TheAmazingAtheist loser for all I care! GOOD DAY AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU!!!!
Nick Brady (9 years ago)
That's very true, Ironknight! Are you Catholic? because that is the very same point our priest brought up in his weekly homily. But, at any rate, you made a good point there! May God bless you, everyone here, and the Pope!
ironknight5990 (9 years ago)
You bring avalid point, but I believe that a better idea of our "prayers to the saints" is simply a request to have those who are alive in heaven to pray for us, just as we would have a family member or a friend pray for us. They aren't dead or passed on. They are alive and still with us, by the Grace of God
We Protestants of course believe that the only mediator between man and God is Christ Jesus, according to the Scriptures which we believe is the only infallible rule of faith and morals. I believe that to pray to men and women passed on is to attribute to them divine qualties - a kind of semi-omniscience which, of course, is an attribute of the Lord God alone. Nevertheless, this is a lovely piece of music. If only it was a confirmation of doctrine instead!

lunaraligned (9 years ago)
i'm a tad confused.. how come when they called upon the trinity, we replied 'pray for us'? shouldn't the reply have been 'have mercy on us?' the trinity would end up praying to each other and themselves... i think. an explanation please?? lol thanks.

This fat bitch moaing about god and the angels is spouting the utmost drivel.She is merely a frustrated actress.Her parents must be proud that their daughter is so fucked up!Can you help me?P.S.Send all donations immediately.Just like the church-I need money!
Nicholas Lee Lewis (9 years ago)
Why, that is very kind of you. I'm sure that will make a massive difference!!!! Stop deluding yourself, god doesnt exist. As for frightened, I am frightened of no one. As for insecure, I earn £100k a year, dont think I would be earning that if I was scared or insecure, do you? Anyway, Ive done what I set out to do and that was to rattle the cages of Church hugging wankers like you. Go fuck your God and eat Satans shit, hes coming for you. Wooooooooooo!!!!
Paola Sirianni (9 years ago)
I will pray for you. Deep down inside you are really, a very frightened, insecure person. I will pray for you and your family-you really need it. God Bless!

As a Catholic, I prefer this version of the Littany than the basic chanted version. This version gives me chills and brings tears to my eyes. Simply, beautiful.

You mean like Spongebob and Garfield? They're tight with Jesus, Santa, Elvis, and Bob Marley. :) Spongebob says Jesus is awesome and has superpower btw. You can't disagree because he got it from Bob Marley, Jimmy Hendrix, and Steven Tyler. Don't make me call Batman to run you over with a unicorn. Then Donkey Kong will sit on you and fart. :P

As Christians we are asked to take a higher path. Faith isn't always easy but it is the only road which will lead us to salvation. You say that I'm the deluded soul, what do you believe in? Satan? yourself? Must be a very cold and empty existence.
Nicholas Lee Lewis (9 years ago)
I've done what I set out to do and that was to rattle the cages of people like you. Why don't you believe in something you can actually feel, see and hear. Deluded soul!!!!!
18hoss (9 years ago)
Yeah right, long live Satan the single biggest loser of all time. You must be a scholar of sorts to have such insight into this hateful bitterness. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to spend all of eternity with the one that you worship.
Nicholas Lee Lewis (9 years ago)
Vicious nasty bastard spouting his Catholic crap. Lets hope Satan blasts him and his deluded, bigoted, Catholic followers from the face of the earth. The Vatican and his related churches are full of homosexuals. It wouldnt surprise me if he has sucked cock. He sould try it, it's quite nice, especiall with poppers. Long live Satan.

Nori Elisabeth Fahrig (10 years ago)
mmm okay, well I'm glad to see everyone was so emtionally moved, but did anyone listen to the opening verses? Probally not you were just think what a great tune. When invoking the Holy Trinity, you do not respond pray for use. Use common sence. Asking God to pray for us??? HE's GOD!!! DUh? Theologically unsound, and masked by the weepy emotionally tune and drama of the cantor. BTW everyone knows this litany,it's a little dumb to be raising your arm like a liturgical dancer on every response.
emeryja23 (10 years ago)
i love this style of the litany. it's so beautiful. gives me chills. and the cantor sang like an angel!

The song is the Litany of the Saints. This is the John Becker tune, but the words have been modified.
