The 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 those who trespass against us; and lead not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Amen.


The 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.


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, world without end. Amen.


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, 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 whence He shall 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.


Hail Holy Queen

Hail Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, 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.

Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen.


The Memorare

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to Thy protection, implored Thy help, or sought Thy intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, we fly unto Thee, O Virgin of virgins, our Mother! To Thee dow we come, before Thee we stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in Thy mercy, hear and answer us. Amen.


Sequence to the Holy Spirit

Come, Holy Spirit, and from heaven direct on man the rays of Your light. Come Father of the poor; Come, Giver of God’s gifts; Come, Light of men’s hearts. Kindly Paraclete, in Your gracious visits to man’s soul You bring relief and consolation. If it is weary with toil, You bring it ease; in the heat of temptation, Your grace cools it; if sorrowful, Your words console it. Light most blest, shine on the hearts of Your faithful – even into their darkest corners; for without Your aid man can do nothing good, and everything is sinful. Wash clean the sinful soul, rain down Your grace on the parched soul and heal the injured soul. Soften the hard heart, cherish and warm the ice-cold heart, and give direction to the wayward. Give Your seven holy gifts to Your faithful, for their trust is in You. Give them reward for their virtuous acts; give them a death that ensures salvation; give them unending bliss. Amen.


Daily Consecration to Mary

Beautiful Mother, Keeper of my life, Living Tabernacle of God, from my youth you captured my heart and chose me to be one of your many sons (daughters). Thank you so much, dear Mother. I love you. And so today, with full determination, I consecrate and entrust to you my entire life; my past by letting go, my present by trusting, and my future by being available. And I confirm your right to do with me as you desire. Mary, I abandon everything for you and offer everything to you. Use me in your hidden way to help bring about what you promised, “In the end my Immaculate Heart will triumph.” Deepen my trust in you through every prayer, joy, heartache and pain. Take it all and use it to save as many souls as possible. I accept all you send me for this purpose. Mary, keep me mindful of my end and always faithful to you until we meet face to face in heaven.Amen.


Daily Novena to Our Lady of the Epiphany

O Lady of the Epiphany through your power, glory and love show us our salvation, Jesus Christ. As the shepherds of Bethlehem came to you so long ago, we come before you at this moment. To Jesus Christ reigning in your arms, we also bow in awe. O Queen and intimate friend, remember our poverty. We beg you, O tender Mother, to hold our hands and listen closely to the desires and needs of our hearts. Mary, remember (private intentions are mentioned here). We promise to amend our lives. Through your powerful intercession obtain for us the beautiful manifestation of your divine Son in the lives of those we pray for so much. Mystical, Glorious Woman crowned with stars, obtain the miracles and heavenly signs our dear ones need to find and embrace Jesus Christ, the King of Kings. We implore you to reveal the treasures of your heart to us, your poor children, at this urgent hour. Amen.


Grace Before Meals

Bless us, O Lord, and these Thy gifts, which we are about to receive from Thy bounty, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
