Litany of Loreto: Insertions with a Snag

Francis wishes to make additions to The Litany of Loreto, Cardinal Sarah writes in a June 20 letter to the bishops.

The three additions are “Mater misericordiæ” (Mother of Mercy), “Mater spei” (Mother of Hope), and “Solacium migrantium” (Consolation of [illegal] Immigrants).

The intention behind these insertions is too obvious, i.e. to instil Francis propaganda into popular piety. However, the Litany of Loreto is hardly used by the Vatican II church, and those who use the litany are likely to ignore these changes.

Hail Mary help the Christians who have been cruelly martyred at the hands of the Muslim 'immigrants' (invaders) pray for us.

The titles Mater misericordiæ” (Mother of Mercy), “Mater spei” (Mother of Hope), are used frequently and are not modern. The mother of migrants is straight up political nonsense.

Agreed. How about "Accompanier of the Marginalized" or "Companion of those on Death Row," or "Mother of Ciminals Who are Allegedly Killed because of Police Racism"?
Novella Nurney
Uhm.. likely candidates for further additions to the Litany under this pontificate? Oh, and absurd too.

In the Dominican Marian Litany there are over 100 invocations of Our Lady. Among them: Destroyer of the plotter of our perdition. Pray for us

Francis the tinkerer. Always trying to "update" popular devotions of the "peoples" to make some 'gesture' to serve his agenda. Even liberal liturgists I've heard are tired of this man's shenanigans!

This is why Satan is terrified of Our Blessed Mother; She walks all over him.

I would venture a guess that the overwhelming majority of Catholics does not even know what the Litany of Loreto is.

This is akin to the new mysteries of the Rosary. Most Catholics don't pray the Rosary, and many Catholics who do pray the Rosary don't pray …More

Why should any Catholic need to pray some added on version of the Rosary, isn't the original Rosary, asked for by OBL, good enough????? You bet I'll stay with the original.
