SIGN OF THE CROSS
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
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. 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 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.
ACT OF CONTRITION
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 do penance,
to sin no more,
and to avoid whatever leads me to sin.
Our Savior Jesus Christ
suffered and died for us.In His name, my God, have mercy.
THE APOSTLES’ CREED
I 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 Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
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 God, the Father almighty;
He will come 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.
GUARDIAN ANGEL PRAYER (Angel of God)Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom God's love commits me here,
ever this day, be at my side,
to light and guard, rule and guide. Amen.
PRAYER BEFORE MEALS
Bless us, O Lord, and these thy gifts,
which we are about to receive from thy bounty,
through Christ, Our Lord. Amen.
PRAYER AFTER MEALS
We give you thanks for all your benefits, almighty God,
who lives and reigns forever.
May the souls of the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
