THE LORD’S PRAYER
Our Father in Heaven, holy be your name;
your kingdom come; your will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our sins as we forgive
those who sin against us;
Do not bring us to the test
but deliver us from evil.
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners
now and at the hour of our death.
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.
THE 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 power of the Holy Spirit
and born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended to the dead.
On 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
The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
And she conceived by the Holy Spirit.
Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
Be it done to me according to your word.
And the Word was made flesh.
And dwelt among us.
Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.
That we may be made worthy
of the promises of Christ.
Pour forth, we beseech you, O Lord,
your grace into our hearts,
that we to whom the incarnation
of Christ your Son
was made known by the message of an angel,
made by his passion and cross be brought to the glory
of His resurrection;
through the same Christ our Lord
ACT OF FAITH
I firmly believe all 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.
ACT OF HOPE
I hope with complete trust
that you will give me,
through the merits of Jesus Christ,
all necessary graces in this world
and everlasting life in the world to come,
for this is what you have promised
and you always keep your promises.
ACT OF LOVE
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.
ACT OF CONTRITION
I am sorry with my whole heart for all my sins
because you are goodness itself
and sin is an offense against you.
Therefore I firmly resolve,
with the help of your grace,
not to sin again and to avoid
the occasions of sin.
TO THE HOLY SPIRIT
Come, Holy Spirit,
fill the hearts of your faithful
and enkindle 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.
O God, you instructed the hearts of your faithful
by the light of the Holy Spirit.
Grant us in the same Spirit to be truly wise
and rejoice in his consolation.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
All living things look to you
to give them their food in due season.
You give it, they gather it up
you open your hand, they have their fill.
Glory to the Father…
Bless us, O Lord, and these your gifts
which we are about to receive
from your bounty
through Christ our Lord.
Let all the works of the Lord bless the Lords,
and his children shall praise him for ever.
Glory to the Father…
We give you thanks, Almighty God,
for these and all your blessings;
you live and reign for ever and ever.
