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; and 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 the life everlasting. Amen

O My Jesus

O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Your Mercy. 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.

And after this our exile, show unto us the blessed Fruit of your womb, Jesus.

O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary

Pray for us, O holy Mother of God

That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen
