Litany of St. Vincent de Paul

Lord, have mercy.  Lord, have mercy.   

Christ, have mercy.  Christ, hear us. Christ, graciously hear us.

 

The just shall spring as the lily.

And flourish for ever before the Lord.  (Alleluia.)

 

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us. 

Holy Mary, Comforter of the Afflicted, pray for us.

St. Vincent de Paul, pray for us.
