Litany of Humility


Thomas Muglia was inspired by a prayer attributed to Cardinal Rafael Merry del Val of Spain who served as friend and advisor to Pope St. Pius X. This gentle setting of the Litany of Humility is a call to live in imitation of Christ, whose humble heart offers healing for the extreme divisions of today’s world.

From my desire to be loved,
from my desire to be extolled,
from my desire to be honored,
from my desire to be praised,
from my desire to be preferred to,
from my desire to be consulted,
from my desire to be approved,
deliver me, Jesus.

O Jesus, meek and humble hearted,
hear my prayer, hear my prayer.
O Jesus, meek and humble hearted,
hear my prayer, hear my prayer.

And from the fear to be humbled,
from the fear to be despised,
from the fear of suffering rebuke,
from the fear to be defamed,
from the fear to be forgotten,
from the fear of ridicule,
fear to be wronged or suspected,
deliver me, Jesus.
