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 sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty; from there 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.
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.
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. 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 end. Amen.
My God, I thank You for protecting me through the night. I praise You and give You thanks for all the blessings You have bestowed on me. In union with Jesus, I consecrate to You all my thoughts, words, actions, joys and sufferings of this day. Mary, my mother, be with me this day and protect me from all danger. My Guardian Angel and all my patron saints, pray for me. Amen.
Lord, now You let Your servant go in peace. Your word has been fulfilled.
My own eyes have seen the salvation which You have prepared in the sight of every people:
A light to reveal You to the nations and the glory of Your people, Israel.
Lord Jesus Christ, You have given Your followers an example of gentleness and humility, a task that is easy, a burden that is light. Accept the prayers and work of this day, and give us the rest that will strengthen us to render more faithful service to You Who live and reign for ever and ever. Amen.

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of mercy! Hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope! To you do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to you, we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, your eyes of mercy toward us; and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!
O my God, I firmly believe that You are one God in three divine Persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I believe that Your divine Son became man, died for our sins, and that He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe these and all the truths which the holy Catholic Church teaches, because You have revealed them, Who can neither deceive nor be deceived. Amen.
O 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 who I have injured. Amen.
O my God, relying on Your almighty power, infinite mercy and promises, I hope to obtain pardon for my sins, the help of Your grace, and life everlasting through the merits of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Redeemer. Amen.
O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended You. And I detest all my sins, because I dread the loss of heaven and the pains of hell. But most of all, because they offend You, my God, who are all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Your grace, to confess my sins, to do penance, and to avoid the near occasions of sin. Amen.
Lord Jesus Christ, You are the Good Shepherd.
You know each of us and You call us by name to serve in faith.
Help us respond generously to Your voice.
Give courage and guidance to those You call to the priesthood and the diaconate,
to religious life and lay ministry,
so they may respond wholeheartedly and serve devotedly.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Remember our missionaries, Lord, who give up all they have to testify Your Gospel and love. Strengthen them in their moments of difficulty. Crown their labors with the victories of the Holy Spirit. Through their endeavors, may Your blessed Name be made known through the world. Surrounded by an ever growing number of Your children, may they raise to you a hymn of thanksgiving, redemption and glory. Amen.
Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and the wisdom to know the difference.
Almighty Father, You are lavish in bestowing all Your gifts, and we give You thanks for the favors You have given to us.
In Your goodness, You have favored us and kept us safe in the past.
We ask that You continue to protect us and to shelter us in the shadow of Your wings.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, my mother. To you do I come, before you I stand sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen.
O God, Whose only begotten Son, by His life, death and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal life, grant, we beseech You, that while meditating on these mysteries of the most holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise.

Father of all mercies and God of consolation, You love us eternally and transform the shadows of death into the dawn of life. Look upon our grief; be our refuge and comfort so that our sadness and sorrow may turn into the light and peace of Your presence. In dying, Your Son destroyed death; in rising, He restored life. Grant that at the end of our earthly pilgrimage we may be found in His company with our brothers and sisters. There, You shall wipe away every tear. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
O Blessed Saint Joseph, tenderhearted father, faithful guardian of Jesus, chaste spouse of the Mother of God, I pray you join with me in praising God the Father through His divine Son who died on the cross and rose again to give us sinners new life. Though the holy Name of Jesus, pray with me that we may obtain from the eternal Father the favor we ask for (here state your intention).
We have been unfaithful to the unfailing love of God the Father; beg of Jesus mercy for us, His brothers and sisters. Amid the splendor of God’s loving presence, do not forget the sorrows of those who weep. By your prayers and those of your most holy spouse, our Blessed Lady, may the love of Jesus answer our call of confident hope. Amen.
Soul of Christ, sanctify me. Body of Christ, heal me. Blood of Christ, drench me. Water from the side of Christ, wash me. Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
Good Jesus, hear me. In Your wounds, shelter me. From turning away, keep me. From the evil one, protect me.
At the hour of my death, call me. Into Your presence lead me, to praise You with all the saints, forever and ever. Amen.
