Litany of the Way, the Truth, and the Life

The Litany of the Way, the Truth, and the Life reminds us that Jesus embodies the three-fold title of being the Way, the Truth, and the Life. This means that He is the path we must follow to attain eternal life, the embodiment of all truth, and the source of our existence. In essence, this title encompasses all we need to know and believe about Jesus Christ.

As we recite this Litany of the Way, the Truth, and the Life, we become aware of the various ways in which Jesus impacts our lives. He is the path we must take, the truth we must hold on to, and the very reason for our existence. May we follow Him with steadfastness, trusting that He will guide us to eternal life.

In a litany, the leader or a reader usually recites a series of statements or petitions, and the congregation or audience responds with a repeated phrase or refrain. Litany prayers often have a specific structure, with a call-and-response format, and are sometimes used in public worship services or private devotions.
