The Apostles’ 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;
the third day He arose again from the dead;
He ascended into Heaven, and is seated 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 Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church,
the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.
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 us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
The Hail Mary:
Hail Mary, full of grace! the Lord is with thee;
Blessed are 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.
Glory be to the Father:
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 Jesus Requested By Our Lady
O My Jesus, forgive us, save us from the fires of hell.
Lead all souls to Heaven, and help especially those most in need of Thy mercy.
Hail Holy Queen:
Hail! Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope.
To you do we cry, poor banished children of Eve.
To you do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn then, O most gracious advocate, your eyes of mercy towards us;
and after this our exile, show unto is the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus.
O clement! O loving! O sweet Virgin Mary!
Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Prayer After The Rosary
O God, whose only-begotten Son, by His life, death and resurrection,
has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life;
grant, we beseech Thee, that, meditating upon these mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary,
We may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ our Lord.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
That never was it know that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help or sought your intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, we fly to you O Virgin of virgins, our Mother;
to you we come, before you we stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions,
but in your mercy hear and answer us.
