The Lord's Prayer
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.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
(For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours, now and forever.) Amen.
The Apostles' Creed
We believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit,
born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into Hell. On the third day, he rose again from the dead.
He ascended into Heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God,
the Father Almighty. From thence he shall come to judge the living and the
dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion
of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life
The Nicene Creed
We believe in one God, the Father the Almighty.
Creator of Heaven and Earth, of all that is seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only son of God.
Eternally begotten of the Father.
God from God, light from light. True God from true God.
Begotten, not made, one in being with the Father.
Through him, all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation, he was born of the virgin Mary and became man.
For our sake, he was crucified under Pontius Pilate.
He suffered, died, and was buried.
On the third day, he rose again, in fulfillment of the scriptures.
He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son he is worshipped and glorified.
He has spoken through the prophets.
We believe in one holy Catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.
Hail Mary (Angelic Salutation)
Hail Mary, full of grace! The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst 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.
O My Jesus
O my Jesus, forgive us of our sins, save us from the fires of Hell, and lead all
souls into Heaven, especially those in most need of thy mercy.
Hail Holy Queen
(prayer to Mary, typically said at the end of the rosary)
Hail holy queen, mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope.
To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our
sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious
advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us. And after this our exile, show unto
us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet virgin
Mary. Pray for us, O holy mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the
promises of Christ.
Prayer of Saint Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred ... let me sow love.
Where there is injury ... pardon.
Where there is discord ... unity.
Where there is doubt ... faith.
Where there is error ... truth.
Where there is despair ... hope.
Where there is sadness ... joy.
Where there is darkness ... light.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled ... as to console.
To be understood ... as to understand.
To be loved ... as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned.
It is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
A prayer for trust in God - by J. H. Newman
God has created me to do Him some definite service;
He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another.
I have my mission - I may never know it in this life,
but I shall be told it in the next. I am a link in a chain, a bond of
connection between persons. He has not created me for naught.
I shall do good, I shall do His work; I shall be a preacher of truth
in my own place, while not intending it, if I do but keep His commandments
and serve Him in my calling.
Therefore, my God, I will put myself without reserve into your hands.
What have I in heaven, and apart from you what do I want upon earth?
My flesh and my heart fail, but God is the God of my heart,
and my portion forever.
