The History of The Litany of Loreto

The Litany of Loreto originates from the XV century. It was composed by Cardinal Saveli, and later approved by Pope Sixtus V in 1587.

The Litany is often recited in the month of October, regarded as the month of the Virgin Mary. You can touch the heart of the Holy Mother of God by praying the Rosary, and pray the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary next. These devotions help us reach out to Her, that She may lead us to Her Son.

There are many other prayers to the Virgin Mary that you can discover on Hozana.
