The Litany of Loreto (14005)

SKU: 14005
  • The town of Loreto on the Adriatic coast of Italy centers on a Basilica built over the walls of a house within which, according to pious tradition, once lived the Blessed Virgin Mary. Very large is the number of the faithful who have made a pilgrimage to Loreto, but incomparably many more of them derived spiritual benefits from reciting the Litany which originated in that sanctuary. The Litany consists of fifty-one invocations, which present the incomparably special status of Mary in the work of salvation. All fifty-one are commented upon by the author who had already put together a similar work on the invocations of the Litany of Saint Joseph. The Introduction provides appropriate information about the origin of the Litany as well as of the sanctuary of Loreto.

        The commentary to one of the invocations (Seat of Wisdom) can be found online here.
