The Lord's Prayer
Our Father in Heaven, holy be your name; your kingdom come; your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our since as we forgive those who sin against us; Do not bring us to the test but deliver us from evil. Amen
Hail Mary. full of grace, the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your 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
The Apostle's Creed
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontious Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will 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 the life everlasting. Amen
Hail Holy Queen
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 do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, your eyes and mercy toward us, and after this exile show to us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
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. O Vigin of virgins, our Mother! To you we come, before you we stand sinful and sorrowful. O mother of the word incarnate, despise not our petitions, but in your mercy hear and answer us. Amen
The Angel of the Lord decalred unto Mary. And she conceived by the Holy Spirit. Hail Mary...
Behold the handmaid of the Lord. Be it done to me according to your word. Hail Mary...
And the Word was made flesh. And dwelt among us. Hail Mary...
Pray for us O HOly Mother of God. That we maybe made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Pour forth, we beseech you, O Lord, your grace into our hearts, that we to whom the incarnation of Christ your Son was made known by the message of an angel, may by his passion and cross be brought to the glory of his resurrection; through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

Act of Hope
O God, I hope with complete trust that you will give me, through the merits of Jesus Christ, all necessary graces in this world and everlasting life in the world to come, for this is what you have promised and you always keep your promises.

Act of Contrition
O God, I am sorry with my whole heart for all my sins because you are Goodness itself and sin is an offense against you. Therefore I firmly resolve, with the help of your grace, not to sin again and to avoid the occasions of sin.
