The Litany of the Saints is a sacred prayer of the Roman Catholic Church and of the Western Rites of the Orthodox Church. It is a prayer of invocation to the Triune God, and prayers for the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Angels and all the martyrs and saints upon whom Christianity was founded. It is most prominently sung during the Paschal Vigil at the beginning of Sacraments of Initiation for those to be received that night into the Church, in other celebrations of the Sacrament of Baptism and in the liturgy for Holy Orders.
