    V. O Lord, open my lips.
    R. And I shall praise your name.

    V. O God, come to my aid.
    R. O Lord, make haste to help me.

    V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
    R. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. 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;
    on the third day he rose again from the dead;
    he ascended into heaven,
    and is seated at the right hand of God the Father
    almighty;
    from there 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 life everlasting. Amen.

    For the intentions of our Holy Father, the Pope:

    Our Father, Hail Mary (x 3), Glory be

  • Salve Regina

    Hail, holy Queen, mother of mercy; hail, our life, our sweetness, and our hope! To Thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to Thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, Thine eyes of mercy towards us; and after this
    our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of Thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

    V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
    R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

    Let us pray.

    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 meditating on these Mysteries in the most holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may both imitate what they contain, and obtain what they promise, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Memorare

    Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to Thy protection, implored
    Thy help, or sought Thine intercession was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto Thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to Thee do I come, before Thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in Thy mercy hear and answer
    me. Amen.

    Prayer to St Michael


    Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle; be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou Prince of the Heavenly Hosts, by the power of God, thrust down Satan and all other evil spirits who wander through
    the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

    Prayer of Blessed John Henry Newman


    O most gentle Heart of Jesus, ever present in the Blessed Sacrament, ever consumed with burning love for the Holy Souls in Purgatory, have mercy upon the souls of your servants. Bring them from the shadows of exile to your bright home in Heaven, where we trust you and your Blessed Mother have woven for them a crown of unfolding bliss. Amen.
