Litany for First Scrutiny: Sunday March 23, 2014

We chanted this litany for the First Scrutiny yesterday at Sacred Heart Church for our elect and candidates. I wrote the text based on the gospel, The Woman at the Well. Each of the litanies for the three scrutinies are different. I will publish each here on the Monday after the rite is celebrated. 

Response: Christ in me, arise

The First Scrutiny: The Third Sunday of Lent, March 23, 2014

 

From the shallow well of self-pity and apathy…

From the shallow well of self-loathing and inner pain…

From the shallow well of self-sufficiency and mistrust…

From the shallow well of heartache and loneliness…

From the shallow well of jealousy and resentment…

From the shallow well of bitterness and confusion…

From the shallow well of wrongdoing and insult…

From the shallow well of rudeness and disrespect…

From the shallow well of slander and scandal…

From the shallow well of guilt and shame…

From the shallow well of disgrace and ruin…

From the shallow well of fear and isolation…

From the shallow well of sin and division…

From the shallow well of pride and envy…

From the shallow well of malice and greed…

From the shallow well of alcohol addiction and self-satisfaction…

From the shallow well of indifference and impatience…

From the shallow well of consumerism and materialism…

From the shallow well of sex addiction and instant gratification…

From the shallow well of mistrust and empty love…

And from all evil…

And from all evil…

And from all evil…
