Many of these prayers are read or sung each week at Mass!
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.
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.
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.
Grace Before Meals
Bless us, O Lord, and these your gifts,
which we are about to receive from your bounty, through Christ, our Lord. Amen
Prayer to our Guardian Angel
Angel of God, my Guardian dear
To whom God’s love entrusts me here.
Ever this day, be at my side,
To light and guard, to rule and guide.
My God, I give you my heart this day:
all that I do, think or say. Amen.
Act of Contrition
Father, I am sorry for my sins:
for what I have done,
for what I have failed to do.
I will sincerely try to do better especially…
Help me to walk by your light.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
"Memorare" to our Blessed Mother
Remember, O most Gracious Virgin Mary,Hail, Holy Queen
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 I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not our petitions,
but in your mercy,
hear and answer me.
Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy,
Hail, 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.
Prayer of St. 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 doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
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;
And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Act of Faith
O my God, I firmly believe
that you are one God in three divine Persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit;
I believe that your divine Son became man
and died for our sins, and that he will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe these and all the truths
which the Holy Catholic Church teaches, because you have revealed them,
who can neither deceive nor be deceived. Amen.
Act of Hope
O my God,
relying on thy infinite goodness and promises,
I hope to obtain pardon of my sins,
the help of thy grace, and life everlasting,
through the merits of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Redeemer. Amen.
Act of Love
O my God, I love you above all things, with my whole heart and soul, because you are all good and worthy of all my love.
I love my neighbor as myself for the love of you.
I forgive all who have injured me,
and ask pardon of all whom I have injured. Amen.
Prayer to the Holy Spirit
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful
And kindle in them the fires of your love.
Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created
And you shall renew the face of the earth.
Blessed be God.
Blessed be his Holy Name.
Blessed be Jesus Christ, true God and true man.
Blessed be the name of Jesus.
Blessed be his most Sacred Heart.
Blessed be his most Precious Blood.
Blessed be Jesus in the most holy Sacrament of the altar.
Blessed be the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete.
Blessed be the great Mother of God, Mary most holy.
Blessed be her holy and Immaculate Conception.
Blessed be her glorious Assumption.
Blessed be the name of Mary, Virgin and Mother.
Blessed be Saint Joseph, her most chaste spouse.
Blessed be God in the angels and in the saints.
