Sign of the Cross
In the name of the Father,
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit.
Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among 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.
Doxology (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.
Prayer to my Guardian Angel (Angel of God)
Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom God's love
commits me here.
Ever this day be at my side
to light and guard,
to rule and guide.
Loving God, bless the work we do.
Watch over us and guide us in
school and at home.
Help us realize that everything
we do gives praise to you.
We make this prayer in Jesus' name.
The Lord's Prayer (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
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
Act of Contrition
I am sorry for my sins with all my heart.
In choosing to do wrong and failing to do
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
In his name, my God, have mercy.
Grace Before Meals
Bless us, O Lord,
and these thy gifts,
which we are about to receive
from thy bounty,
through Christ our Lord.
Grace After Meals
We give you thanks, almighty God
for all thy gifts,
living and reigning now and forever.
St. Michael Prayer
St. Michael, the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness
and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do thou, O prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl about the world
for the ruin of souls.
I believe in God, the Father Almighty
Creator of heaven and earth;
and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
(Bow head up to the words "Virgin Mary")
who was conceived by 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.
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,
and they shall be created:
and you will renew the face of the earth.
Let us Pray.
Lord, by the light of the Holy Spirit
you have taught the hearts of your faithful.
In the same Spirit, help us to relish what is
right and always rejoice in your
consolation. We ask this through Christ,
The angel spoke God's message to Mary,
and she conceived of the Holy Spirit.
"I am the lowly servant of the Lord:
let it be done to me according to your word"
And the Word became flesh, and lived
Pray for us, holy Mother of God,
that we may become worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray.
Lord, fill our hearts with your grace:
once through the message of an angel
you revealed to us the incarnation of your Son;
now, through his suffering and death
lead us to the glory of his resurrection.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
