Catholic prayers

ACT OF CONTRITION

My God, I am sorry for my sins

with all my heart, I detest them.

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.

ACT OF FAITH

My God, I firmly believe you are one God in three Divine Persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

I believe in Jesus Christ, your son, who became man and died for our sins,and who will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe these and all 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, trusting in your infinite goodness and promises, I hope to obtain pardon for my sins, the help ofyour grace, and life everlasting, through the merits of Jesus Christ, my Lord and redeemer.  Amen.

ACT OF LOVE

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 love of you.  I forgive all who have injured me, and I ask pardon of all whom I have injured.  Amen.

APOSTLES’ 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 riht 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 the life everlasting.  Amen.

NICENE CREED

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker 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 came down from heaven:

By the power of the Holy Spirit 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 worshiped 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.  Amen.

GLORY BE

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 forever.  Amen.

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.

HAIL MARY

Hail Mary, full of grace,

the Lord is with you;

blessed are you among women,

and blessed in the fruit of your womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,

pray for us sinners

now and at the hour of our death.  Amen.

PRAYER OF SAINT FRANCIS

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.


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.
