The Litany of the Saints like you’ve never heard it before

My pastor Fr. John Kiley sent me a link to this African version of the Litany of the Saints, which he heard for the first time at the cathedral of Chartres in France.  It’s beautiful!  If you can listen to this without moving to the music, you either have great self control or no sense of rhythm.  It’s a good thing I was alone while I listened to it (in the kitchen while preparing a snack), because I ended up doing a little dance around the table…

    “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.” Hebrews 12.1 NLT
