Litany Of The Passion

Being delivered from our sinful passions through the Passion of Christ

Each title of this Litany takes us through the stages of Jesus’ Passion. They proclaim the healing of our passions and deliverance from disordered passions.

That may incite our emotions, feelings and actions when we have not sought reconciliation with God and with others.

The powers of darkness can tempt us to give into their influences and we can ignore God’s Grace.

The effects of sin can manifest as addictions, abuse, malice, revenge, or suicidal and self-harming thoughts which all have a common root. They are the powers of darkness referred to in Ephesians 6:12.

The Power of God’s Mercy defeats evil and flows through the Grace of these Titles when we ask the Holy Spirit to prompt us which Titles we are to pray for ourselves and for others.

Let Us Pray:

Heavenly Father, You have set us free through Your beloved Son who You have sent to be our Saviour. Through His Blood that He shed on the Cross deliver us from our sinful passions and restore us to friendship with You.

Grant that we who venerate His Precious Blood as the price of our salvation may be defended always on earth from the evils of this present life and be welcomed into eternal life with You. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.


PRAYER COMMENT:

We can pray one of these Litany Titles over and over again in the times of our anger or resentment when our evil passions are aroused and when we are in the process of taking matters into our own hands by striking out at others.

We receive the Grace Jesus won for us in the different stages of His Passion and Cross to overcome our evil reactions towards others who are treating us badly or unjustly etc.

If we are regularly tormented in this way or have frequent outbursts of anger and hatred towards others we will need to pray this way daily until our evil passions are healed.
