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. Amen


Prayer of Praise
Glory to the Father,
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be. Amen


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; 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 there 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. Amen


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 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. Amen


The Jesus Prayer
Lord Jesus Christ,
Son of God,
have mercy on me,
a sinner.


Prayer for the Dead
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine 
upon them.
May they rest in peace. 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, O Lord, and our hearts shall be created.
And you shall renew the face of the world.
O God, who taught the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit,
grant us by the same Spirit to delight in what is right
and always to rejoice in his consolation.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen


Hail Mary
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.


Blessing Before Meals
Bless us, O Lord, and these your gifts,
which we are about to receive
from your goodness,
through Christ our Lord. Amen


Prayer to My Guardian Angel
Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom God’s love commits me here,
ever this day (or night) be at my side,
to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen


Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not seek
so much 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,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen


Prayer of St. Patrick
May the strength of God pilot us.
May the power of God preserve us. May the wisdom of God instruct us.
May the hand of God protect us. May the way of God direct us.
May the shield of God defend us.


Remember, most loving Virgin Mary,
never was it heard that anyone who turned to you for help was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, though burdened by my sins,
I run to your protection for you are my mother.
Mother of the Word of God,
do not despise my words of pleading
but be merciful and hear my prayer.
