The Lord's Prayer (Our Father)

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.

Act of Contrition

My God,
I am sorry for my sins with all my heart.
In choosing to do wrong and failing to do
I have sinned against you whom I should
 love above all things.
I firmly intend, with your help,
 to do penance, to sin no more,
 and to avoid whatever leads me to sin.
Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died
 for us.
 In his name, my God, have mercy.

Grace Before Meals

Bless us, O Lord,
 and these thy gifts,
 which we are about to receive
 from thy bounty,
 through Christ our Lord.

Grace After Meals

We give you thanks, almighty God
 for all thy gifts,
 living and reigning now and forever.

Apostles Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty
 Creator of heaven and earth;
 and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
(Bow head up to the words "Virgin Mary")
 who was conceived by 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.

St. Michael Prayer

St. Michael, the Archangel,
 defend us in battle.
 Be our defense against the wickedness
 and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
 and do thou, O prince of the heavenly host,
 by the power of God,
 thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
 who prowl about the world
 for the ruin of souls.
