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

Our Father

Our Father who art in Heaven
Hallowed be Thy name, Thy Kingdon come
Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our tresspasses, as we forgive those who tresspass against us
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Hail Mary

Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with Thee
Blessed our thou amongst women
And blessed is the Fruit of thy womb Jesus

Now and at the hour of our death, AMEN.

Apostle's Creed

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 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.

Fatima Prayer

O My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell
and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those
who are in most need of Thy mercy.

The 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.

My Father who knows me
Based on Psalm 139

Father and lover of life,
you know the depths of my innermost self,
and you understand me.
You protect me on every side,
shielding me from all harm.
When you put me together
in my mother’s womb,
you knew all about me.
I thank you for the wonder of myself,
and I stand in awe
at all that you have made.
As you know and love me,
so may I come to know and love you.
Guide me in your ways
