Common Catholic Prayers

 

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.

 

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 the life everlasting. 

Amen.

 

The Nicene Creed

 

I believe in one God, 

the Father Almighty, 

maker of heaven and earth, 

 of all things visible and invisible.

 

I believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, 

the only Begotten Son of God, 

born of the Father before all ages.

God from God, Light from Light, 

true God from true God, 

begotten, not made, 

consubstantial with the Father. 

Through him all things were made. 

For us men and for our salvation, 

he came down from heaven, 

 

and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate

 of the Virgin Mary, and became man.

 

For our sake he was crucified 

under Pontius Pilate; 

he suffered death and was buried.

 

 

and rose again on the third day 

in accordance with the Scriptures; 

 

He ascended into heaven 

and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again in glory 

to judge the living and the dead, 

and his kingdom will have no end.

 

I believe in the Holy Spirit, 

the Lord, the giver of life, 

who proceeds from the 

Father and the Son.

who with the Father and the Son 

is adored and glorified, 

who has spoken through the Prophets. 

I believe in one holy 

Catholic and apostolic Church. 

I confess one 

baptism for the forgiveness of sins,

 and I look forward to the resurrection 

of the dead, and the life of 

the world to come.

Amen.

 

Hail Mary

 

Hail Mary, full or 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. 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.

 

 

 

Sign of the Cross

 

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

 

 

 

Our Father

 

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy, kingdom come, they 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. Amen.

 

 

 

Morning Offering

 

Dear Lord, I do not know what will happen to me today. I only know that nothing will happen that was not foreseen by You, and directed to my greater good from all eternity. I adore Your holy and unfathomable plans, and submit to them with all my heart for love of You, the Pope, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. 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. 

 

 

 

Grace After Meals

 

We give Thee thanks for all Thy benefits, O Almighty God, who livest and reignest world without end. Amen. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. 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, Amen. 

 

 

 

​Memorare

 

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,

 that never was it known

 that any one 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 my Mother;

 to thee do 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 them. Amen.
