Summer Ember Saturday

Hymns, readings and prayers for this Whit Embertide:

Hymns: Veni, Sancte Spiritus (Come, Thou Holy Spiritus, come) Veni, Creator Spiritus, (Come Holy Spirit, Creator Blest) Readings: Ember Saturday:

Joel, 2. 28-32

Leviticus, 23. 9-11, 15-17, 21

Deuteronomy, 26. 1-11

Leviticus, 26. 3-12

Saint Paul to the Romans, 5. 1-5

Saint Luke, 4.38-44



An excellent prayer for this purpose is the Litany of the Saints, in which so many bishops, priests, and levites are invoked; or the Rosary may be appropriately said, grouping those for whom we pray into five classes, corresponding to the five decades.

Seven Penitential Psalms

Litany of the Saints

Litany to Obtain Holy Priests

Hour of Reparation
