The Sign of the Cross
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
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, 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 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.
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.
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.
