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.
Prayer to St. Michael
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defence against
the wickedness and snares
of the Devil. May God rebuke him,
we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
O glorious prince St. Michael, chief and commander
of the heavenly hosts, guardian of souls,
vanquisher of rebel spirits, servant in the house
of the Divine King and our admirable conductor, you who shine with excellence and superhuman virtue
deliver us from all evil, who turn to you with confidence and enable us
by your gracious protection to serve God more and more faithfully every day.
Soul of Christ, sanctify me Body of Christ, save me Blood of Christ, inebriate me Water from Christ's side, wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me O good Jesus, hear me Within Thy wounds hide me Suffer me not
to be separated from Thee
From the malicious enemy
defend me In the hour of my death call me And bid me come unto Thee That I may praise Thee with Thy saints a
nd with Thy angels Forever and ever.
The Hail Holy Queen
(The Salve Regina)
Hail, holy Queen, mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness,
and our hope. To you we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to you we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley 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.
Prayer to my Guardian Angel
Angel of God, My Guardian Dear, to whom His love
commits me here,
ever this day be at my side,
to light and to guard,
to rule and guide. 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.
Act of Contrition
O my God, I am heartily sorry
for having offended Thee, 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 Thee,
my God, Who are all good
and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve,
with the help of Thy grace, to confess my sins,
to do penance, and to amend my life.
A child's prayer for
a friend who is ill
Dear God, (name of friend) is ill. They are not allowed to go to school or come over to play. I’m sad because I miss them. They must be feeling miserable and lonely as well. Please be close to them. Please be with the people who are looking after them. Please help them to get better and to know that you love them.
Prayer to St. Joseph
To you, O blessed Joseph, do we come in our tribulation, and having implored the help of your most holy Spouse, we confidently invoke your patronage also.
Through that charity
which bound you to the Immaculate
Virgin Mother of God and through the paternal love with which you embraced
the Child Jesus, we humbly beg you
graciously to regard
the inheritance which Jesus Christ
has purchased by his Blood, and with your power and strength to aid us in our necessities.
O most watchful guardian
of the Holy Family, defend the chosen children
of Jesus Christ; O most loving father,
ward off from us every contagion of error
and corrupting influence; O our most mighty protector,
be kind to us and from heaven
assist us in our struggle with the power of darkness.
As once you rescued
the Child Jesus from deadly peril, so now protect God’s Holy Church from the snares of the enemy
and from all adversity; shield, too, each one of us
by your constant protection, so that, supported by your example and your aid, we may be able to live piously,
to die in holiness, and to obtain eternal happiness
The 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.
A Liturgy for Handwashing
As I wash my hands today
wash my heart from fear, I pray
wash my mind from needless fret
wash the world from deadly threat
wash the needy with your grace
wash me as I seek your face
wash me, Jesus, every part
wash me: body, mind and heart.
Prayer to Your
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, Rule and guide.
