The Litany of the Counsel of the Saints III

Magnificat has this wonderful litany this month leading up to All Saints' Day. Just as in Octobers past, I thought it might be good to divide it up with a few every day so that I could reflect on them better. So I'm sharing it with y'all ... there will be a posting of part of this litany throughout October.
This litany is a meditation on what some of the saints have spoken or written. As we listen to these saints, we pray for a deeper personal participation in their sanctity. This litany represents only a small sampling of the vast communion of the saints. Feel free to add our favorites to it. One option is to sing the litany and its response.

R. (Saint's name), pray for us

Saint Mary Magdalene: "I have seen the Lord!" R

Saint Ignatius of Antioch: "There is water living and speaking in me, saying from within me, 'Come to the Father.'" R

Saint Justin Martyr: "The greatest grace God can give someone is to send him a trial he cannot bear with his own powers -- and then sustain him with his grace so he may endure to the end and be saved."
