Act of Contrition
My God,
I am sorry for my sins
with all my heart.
In choosing to do wrong
and failing to do good,
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 for us.
In His name, my God, have mercy.

Act of Hope
Oh my God,
relying on you almighty power
and infinite mercy and promises,
I hope to obtain pardon of my sins,
the help of your grace
life everlasting
through the merits of Jesus Christ,
my Lord and Redeemer.
Amen.

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.
Amen.

Canticle of Mary - Luke 1:46-55
My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
my spirit rejoices in God my savior:
for He has looked with favor on His lowly servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed:
The Almighty has done great things for me,
and, Holy is His name.
He has mercy on those who fear Him
in every generation.
He has shown the strength of his arm,
He has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
and has lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and sent the rich away empty handed.
He has come to the help of His servant Israel,
for He has remembered His promise of mercy,
the promise He made to our fathers,
to Abraham and His children for ever.
Amen.

Come Holy Spirit
Come Holy Spirit,
fill the hearts of us Your faithful
and kindle in us the fire of Your love.
Send forth Your spirit and we shall be created
And You shall renew the face of the earth.
Let us pray.
Oh God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit
Instructs the hearts of the faithful,
Grant, that by the same Holy Spirit
we may be truly wise and
ever rejoice in His consolations.
Through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Evening Prayer to God the Father
O eternal God and Ruler of all creation,
You have allowed me to reach this hour.
Forgive the sins I have committed this day by word,
deed or thought.
Purify me, O Lord,
from every spiritual and physical stain.
Grant that I may rise from this sleep to glorify
You by my deeds throughout my entire lifetime,
and that I be victorious over every spiritual and physical enemy.
Deliver me, O Lord,
from all vain thoughts and from evil desires,
for yours is the kingdom,
and the power,
and the glory,
Father, Son,
and Holy Spirit,
now and ever,
and forever.
Amen.

Gloria
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to people
of good will.  We praise you, we bless you, we adore you,
we glorify you, we give you thanks for your great glory.
Lord God, heavenly King, O God almighty Father.
Lord Jesus Christ, Only Begotten Son, Lord God, Lamb
of God, Son of the Father, you take away the sins of the
world, have mercy on us; you take away the sins of the
world, receive our prayer; you are seated at the right hand
of the Father, have mercy on us.
For you alone are the Holy One, you alone are the Lord,
you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ, with the Holy
Spirit in the glory of God the Father. Amen.

Grace Before Meals
Bless us, oh Lord,
and these, Thy Gifts,

Amen.

Guardian Angel Prayer
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 and rule and guide.
Amen.

Hail Mary
Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with you.
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.

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.

Prayer for Healing
Lord, look upon me with eyes of mercy,
may your healing hand rest upon me,
may your lifegiving powers flow into every
cell of my body and into the depths of my soul,
cleansing, purifying, restoring me to
wholeness and strength for service in your Kingdom.
Amen.

Prayer of St. Francis
Lord, Make Me an Instrument
of Your Peace
Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy.
O, Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
it is in dying that we are born again to eternal life.

Act of Faith
O my God,
I believe that you are one God
in three Divine Persons:
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
I believe that your Divine Son
became man and died for our sins,
and that He will come again
to judge the living and the dead.
I believe these and all the truths
that the Catholic Church teaches,
because you have reveled them,
who can neither deceive nor be deceived.
Amen.

Act of Love
Oh my God,
I love you above all things
with my whole heart and soul,
because you are all good
and worthy of all love.
I love my neighbor as myself
for the love of you
I forgive all who have injured me
and ask pardon of all whom I have injured.
Amen.

Canticle of Zechariah - Luke 1:68-79
Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel;
He has come to His people to set them free.
He has raised up for us a mighty savior,
born of the house of His servant David.
Through His holy prophets he promised of old
that he would save us from our enemies,
from the hands of all who hate us.
He promised to show mercy to our fathers
and to remember His Holy Covenant.
This was the oath he swore to our father Abraham:
to set us free from the hands of our enemies,
free to worship Him without fear,
holy and righteous in His sight
all the days of our life.
You, my child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High;
for you will go before the Lord to prepare His way,
to give His people knowledge of salvation
by the forgiveness of their sins.
In the tender compassion of our God
the dawn from on high shall break upon us,
to shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death,
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever.
Amen.

O Holy Spirit, most merciful Comforter:
You proceed from the Father in a manner beyond our understanding.
Come, I beseech You, and take up your abode in my heart.
Purify and cleanse me from all sin, and sanctify my soul.
Cleanse it from every impurity, water its dryness,
melt its coldness, and save it from its sinful ways.
Make me truly humble and resigned,
that I may be pleasing to You,
and that You might abide with me forever.
Most Blessed Light, most Amiable Light, enlighten me.
O Rapturous Joy of Paradise, Font of Purest Delight,
My God, give yourself to me and

Filled with confidence in your goodness and knowing full well your power,
