As a result of feeling the call to fully honor our Blessed Mother, on December 13, 2003, I began a new discussion board.  This board is for every devoted Catholic woman.  She may be married or single; she may already have a family or just starting one; she may be trying to conceive or using natural family planning to avoid for now; she may be pregnant or facing the cross of infertility.  We may look very different, or we may look oddly familiar.  However, no matter what our lives look like, the one thread that binds us together is our devotion to the Roman Catholic's faith and doctrines.  Please stop by.  We would love for you to be a part of our family at "Handmaidens of the Lord".  You may access our home by clicking the following blinkie...


The Sign of the Cross
     In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.
Our Father
     Our Father, who art in heaven; hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come; thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.  Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.  Amen.
Hail Mary
     Hail, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.  Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.  Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.  Amen.
Glory Be
     Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.  As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be world without end.  Amen.
Apostle's Creed
     I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.  I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.  He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.  He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried.  He descended into hell.  The third day he rose again.  He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.   He will come again to judge the living and the dead.  I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the  resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.  Amen.
Prayer to the Holy Spirit
     Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.  Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created.  And you shall renew the face of the earth.
     Let us pray:
     O God, who instruct the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant us in the same spirit to savor what is right, and always to rejoice in his consolation.  Through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
     Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.  Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.  To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.  O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy hear and answer me.  Amen.
The Confiteor
     I confess to almighty God, and to you, my brothers and sister, that I have sinned through my own fault, in my thoughts and in my words, in what I have done, and in what I have failed to do; and I ask blessed Mary, ever Virgin, all the angles and saints, and you, my brothers and sisters, to pray for me to the Lord our God.
Act of Contrition
     My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart.  In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things.  I firmly intend with your help to sin no more, to do penance and to avoid whatever leads me to sin.  Amen.
An Act of Faith
     O God, I firmly believe all the truths that you have revealed and that you teach us through your Church, for you are truth itself and can neither deceive nor be deceived.  Amen.
An Act of Hope
     O God, I hope with complete trust that you will give me, through the merits of Jesus Christ, all the necessary grace in this world and everlasting life in the world to come, for this is what you have promised and you always keep your promises.  Amen.
An Act of Charity
     O God, I love you with my whole heart above all things, because you are infinitely good; and for your sake I love my neighbor as I love myself.  Amen.
