Appendix-2: Traditional Catholic Prayers
The Sign of the Cross
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
Our Father
(Prayer that Jesus taught his Apostles, from Matthew 6: 5-15)
V: Our Father, who art in Heaven, hollowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come; Thy Will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.
R: 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. Amen
The Fatima Prayer: O My Jesus
(Sacred Tradition: requested by the Blessed Virgin Mary at Fatima)
O my Jesus,
Forgive us our sins,
Save us from the fires of hell,
Lead all souls to Heaven,
Especially those who have the most need of your mercy. Amen
Come Holy Spirit
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Your faithful and kindle in them the fire of Your Love.
Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created, and You shall renew the face of the Earth.
O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful;
Grant, that by the same Holy Spirit, we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations,
Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
The Apostles’ Creed
(Sacred Tradition based on the early teachings of the first Apostles of Jesus)
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 Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended to the dead. On the third day He rose again.
He ascended into Heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again 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
Hail, Holy Queen
(Sacred Tradition: to be said at the end of the Rosary)
V: Hail, Holy Queen,
(ALL) 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, O 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
V: Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.
R: That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ,
V: Let us pray:
(ALL) 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 upon these mysteries of
the most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain
what they promise. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen
Prayer to Our Lady
(Indulgence, 3 years: plenary, under usual conditions, for monthly recitation)
May we be assisted, we ask You, O Lord,
By the worshipful intercession of Your glorious Mother, The ever-Virgin Mary;
That we who have been enriched by her perpetual blessings,
May be delivered from all dangers,
And through her loving kindness made to be of one heart and mind;
Who lives and reins world without end. Amen
