PRAYERS

OUR FATHER:
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 them that 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 thee: blessed art thou amongst 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 our death. Amen.
 
I BELIEVE:
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 Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate; was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell; the third day he rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the Holy Catholic Church; the communion of saints the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.

Therefore I beseech blessed Mary ever a virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and all the Saints, to pray to the Lord our God for me.

AN ACT OF FAITH:
I firmly believe that there is one God; and that in this one God there are three Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; that the Son took to Himself the nature of man, from the Virgin Mary's womb, by the power of the Holy Ghost; and that in this our human nature He was crucified and died for us; that afterwards He rose again and ascended into heaven; from thence He shall come to repay the just with everlasting glory, and the wicked with everlasting punishment. Moreover, I believe whatsoever else the Catholic Church proposes to be believed; and this because God, who is the sovereign Truth, who can neither deceive nor be deceived, has revealed all these things to this His Church.
 
AN ACT OF HOPE:
O my God, relying on Thine almighty power and Thine infinite mercy and goodness, and because Thou art faithful to Thy promises, I trust in Thee that Thou wilt grant me forgiveness of my sins, through the merits of Jesus Christ Thy Son; and that Thou wilt give me the assistance of Thy grace, with which I may labour to continue to the end in the diligent exercise of all good works, and may deserve to obtain the glory which Thou hast promised in heaven.
 
AN ACT OF CHARITY:
O Lord, my God, I love Thee with my whole heart, and above all things, because Thou, O God, art the sovereign good, and for Thine own infinite perfections art most worthy of all love; and for Thy sake I also love my neighbour as myself. I renounce every thought which is contrary to that love of one another, by which men are known to be the disciples of Thy Son; I forgive all who have in any way injured me, and I beg Thy grace and mercy for all the world.
 
AN ACT OF CONTRITION:
O my God, I am sorry and beg pardon for all my sins, and detest them above all things, because they deserve Thy dreadful punishments, because they have crucified my loving Saviour Jesus Christ, and most of all, because they offend Thine infinite goodness; and I firmly resolve, by the help of 'Thy grace, never to offend Thee again, and carefully to avoid the occasions of sin.
 
IN TEMPTATION:
Lord, save me, or I perish. Keep me close to Thee by Thy grace, or I shall sin and fall away from Thee. Lord, I am very weak; give me grace and make my will strong, that I may not sin. Jesus, help me; Mary, help me; my holy Angel, watch over me.
 
IN TROUBLE:
In all things may the most holy, the most just, and the most lovable will of God be done, praised and exalted above all for ever. Thy will be done O Lord, Thy will be done. The Lord has given, the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.
 
IN SICKNESS AND PAIN:
Lord, Thy will be done, I take this for my sin. I offer up to Thee my sufferings, together with all that my Saviour has suffered for me; and I beg of Thee, through His sufferings, to have mercy on me. Free me from this illness and pain if Thou willest and if it be for my good. Thou lovest me too much to let me suffer unless it be for my good. Therefore, O Lord, I trust myself to Thee; do with me as Thou pleasest. In sickness and in health, I wish to love Thee always.
 
FOR PURITY:
O Jesus, most pure of heart! O spotless Lamb of God! help me that I may keep my heart and body pure, that all through my life I may never displease Thee by any wicked thing. Give me the blessing of the clean of heart.
 
ON GOING TO BED:
Into Thy hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit. Lord Jesus, receive my soul. In the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ crucified, I lay me down to rest. Bless me, O Lord, and defend me; preserve me from a sudden and unprovided death, and from all dangers, and bring me to life everlasting with Thee.
 
PRAYER BEFORE MASS:
O my Saviour, I come before Thy holy Altar to assist at Thy divine Sacrifice. Do Thou prepare my soul to receive Thy grace; fix my mind on Thee; wash away in Thy Precious Blood all the sins of which Thou seest me guilty; I hate them for the love of Thee, and most humbly beg pardon for them. Grant, O sweet Jesus, that uniting my intentions to Thine, I may spend my whole life for Thy glory, as Thou didst give Thy life for the saving of my soul. Amen.
I wish to share in the communion of saints by gaining all the indulgences I can today; and I place them in the hands of Our Blessed Lady for the relief of the souls in purgatory. My Jesus, mercy! Mary, help!
The Priest begins Mass standing at the foot of the Altar. 
Call to mind the Garden of Olives, where Our Lord went on Holy Thursday night, taking with him his three chosen Apostles—Peter, James and John. It was then that Our Saviour began His Passion. He went a little distance from these His companions and prayed, His face bowed to the earth. The pain He felt was so bitter that He sweated blood, which ran in great drops to the ground. He accepted His sufferings, although they cost Him so much, saying to His heavenly Father, "Not My will, but Thine he done."
 
THE ANGELUS:
To be said morning, noon, and night, to put us in mind that God's the Son became man for our salvation.
1. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary:
And she conceived of the Holy Ghost.
Hail Mary, etc;
2. Behold the handmaid of the Lord
Be it done unto me according to Thy word.
Hail Mary, etc.
And the Word was made Flesh
And dwelt among us.
Hail Mary, etc.
V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Let us pray.
Pour forth we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ, Thy Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may by His Passion and Cross + be brought to the glory of His Resurrection, through the same Chris: Our Lord. Amen. 
May the divine assistance remain always with us and may the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
Amen.
