Litany of the Holy Trinity

"In times of great need 
         in the Church and in the world, 
and when great calamities threaten - such as war, hurricane or famine - litanies should be prayed publicly and privately for the common good."

I received this in an email from The Catholic Company today and I thought I would share it. 

 We are in a time of great calamities... our nation is at war in Iraq,
 our world is at war against the unborn,
the innocence of our young is being corrupted through media, 
our adolescents and teens are bombarded with immorality,
our seniors are "the forgotten" members of our society,
millions of people around the world including America, are starving,
America has experienced more tornadoes than previous years,
we have learned of the many earthquakes happening around the world.

The list could go on and on, but you see my point.  We do need the mercy of God so I chose this Litany of the Most Holy Trinity to share with all of you.

Litany of the Most Holy Trinity
God the Holy Ghost, have mercy on us.
Holy Trinity, One God, have mercy on us.
Father from Whom are all things, have mercy on us.
Son through Whom are all things, have mercy on us.
Holy Ghost in Whom are all things, have mercy on us.
Holy and undivided Trinity, have mercy on us...

May the Holy Trinity have Mercy on us,
