I learned about this game recently and have decided to start it here with like so:

It's very simple, you choose a saints' name, and the next person answers with a saint whose name begins with the next letter of the alphabet. ABC. . . etc.!

And to make it especially worthwhile, like a litany, add 'pray for us.'

Here's the beginning.  Cheesy

St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori, pray for us.

We're just paying attention to the first letter. Cheesy Though that sure is a neat idea George! Perhaps we'll try that after a few rounds, and have a doubles round. AABBCC etc.? But for the start, simple! Grin

So after St. Alphonsus Maria, it would go like this. . .

St. Bernard of Clairvaux, pray for us!

St. Casimir, pray for us!


And so forth..  Cheesy

Saint Catherine of Siena,
you who said , "It is not the hour to seek one's self for one's self, nor to flee pains in order to possess consolations; nay, it is the hour to lose one's self." (Letters of St. Catherine)
Pray for us
that we may learn to lose ourselves in Christ and live for Him alone
Amen!
