In preparation for the canonization of Saint Eugene de Mazenod, a LITANY was composed by an Oblate in conjunction with a Benedictine Sister. A LITANY PRAYER gives an explanation about each of the invocations of the Litany.

The explanations have been taken mostly from the book, LIVING IN THE SPIRIT’S FIRE, by Alfred Hubenig OMI. We hope that through your praying the litany of St Eugene, you will come to know him better.

“To love the Church is to love Jesus Christ”. These words were ingrained in the heart and mind of Eugene de Mazenod. Through the example of his life, you too can become a ‘New Fire’ in the Church today.

The following pages (from St Eugene de Mazenod) contain small subsections of the Litany, as well as reflection questions and short video reflections from a number of different Oblates of Mary Immaculate.
