Notes: Litany ending with Hymn: Oh God, my faithful God. The closing prayer of the litany may continue with a specific prayer for a member of the community or other people who have been slandered. Or the prayer may be followed by a prayer of confession, acknowledging our own sin of slander and gossip.
