In praying, do not babble like the pagans,
who think that they will be heard because of their many words.
Do not be like them. Your Father knows
what you need before you ask him.
"This is how you are to pray: Our Father in
heaven, hallowed be your name, ...
Matthew 6: 7-9
Our Father, who art
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.
Hail Mary, full of 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.
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 for ever.
I believe in
God, the Father Almighty,
Creator of Heaven
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,
died, and was buried.
He descended into Hell;
on the third day He
rose again from the dead;
He ascended into Heaven,
and sitteth 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.
Bless us, O Lord, and
these Thy gifts,
which we are about to
from Thy bounty
through Christ Our
Angel of God, my guardian dear,
To whom His love commits me here;
Ever this day be at my side,
To light and guard, to rule and guide.
