Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus.
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of death. Amen.
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, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exhile, show unto us the blessed fruit of they 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.
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, sits at the right hand of God the Father almighty. He will come again 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.
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
O my Jesus, forgive our sins, save us from the fires of hell; lead all souls to heaven especially those who are most in need of your mercy.
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. Amen.
Our Father – A Reflection
I have said the Our Father so many times that I don’t even think about the
words anymore. I woke up to that realization recently. When I stopped and
reflected on the prayer, my heart spoke this.
Our Father Who Art In Heaven – O Creator, you made all things in love.
All of creation is a blessing emanating from you.
Hallowed Be Thy Name – Help us to let go, to clear the space inside of
busy forgetfulness so that You can come and reside within us.
Thy Kingdom Come – Let your counsel rule our lives; unite our “I can” to
your so that, together, we can bring forth a new world of peace.
Thy Will Be Done On Earth As It Is In Heaven – As we find your love in
ours, let your heart’s fervent desire move us beyond ourselves to help
bring about a new way of being.
Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread – Grant what we need each day in
bread and insight; subsistence for the call of growing life.
And Forgive Us Our Trespassers As We Forgive Those Who Trespass
Against Us – Loose the cords of mistakes that bind us, as we release the
strands we hold of other’s guilt.
And Lead Us Not Into Temptation, But Deliver Us From Evil – Don’t let
surface things distract us; free us from the things that hold us back from
our true purpose.
