1 Catholic Prayers A TREASURY OF CATHOLIC PRAYER Prayer and worship are at the heart of our Catholic faith. It is important that our students know and pray the traditional prayers of the Church, as well as give voice to prayer in their own thoughts and words. The Catechism of the Catholic Church tells us, The wonder of prayer is revealed beside the well where we come seeking water. There, Christ comes to meet evey human being. (CCC 2559) This booklet includes texts of many traditional prayers of the Catholic Church for use with your family and indicates the grade level when children should know these prayers. May God richly bless you and your family as you pray these prayers together in your home. FOR YOUR FAMILY
2 Act of Contrition (Contemporary) (Grades 2-8) O my God, I am sorry I have sinned. Please forgive me. I know you love me. I want to love you and to be good to everyone. Help me make up for my sins.

I firmly resolve, with the help of your grace, to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin. Amen. Act of Faith (Grades 6-8) O my God, I firmly believe that You are the one God in three Divine Persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I believe that Your Divine Son became man and died for our sins and that He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe these and all the truths which the Holy Catholic Church teaches, because You revealed them; You who can neither deceive nor be deceived. Act of Hope (Grades 6-8) O my God, relying on Your infinite goodness and promises, I hope to obtain pardon of my sins, the help of your grace and life everlasting, through the merits of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Redeemer.

Holy Mary, Mother of God... and the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. Hail Mary, full of grace... Holy Mary, Mother of God... Pray for us, O holy Mother of God. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Let us pray: 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.
3 Apostles Creed (Grades 5-8) 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; the third day, he rose from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty. From thence, He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

Magnificat My being proclaims the greatness of the Lord, My spirit finds joy in God my savior, For he has looked upon his servant in her lowliness; all ages come shall call me blessed. God who is mighty has done great by me, holy is His name; His mercy is from age to age on those He has shown might with his arm; He has confused the proud in their inmost thoughts. He has deposed the mighty from their thrones and raised the lowly to high places. The hungry He has given every good thing, while the rich He has sent empty away. He has upheld Israel His servant, ever mindful of his mercy; even as He promised our father, promised Abraham and his descendants forever. Memorare Remember, 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. Inspired by this confidence, I fly to you, O Virgin of virgins, my mother. To you I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.

9 Nicene Creed (Grades 4-8) We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, one in being with the Father. Through Him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation, He came down from heaven. By the power of the Holy Spirit, he was born of the Virgin Mary, and become man. For our sake, He was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered, died, and was buried. On the third day, He rose again in fulfillment of the Scriptures; He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right had of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and His kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son, He is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen. Our Father (Grades 1-8) Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed 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 trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen. Queen of Heaven (Regina Coeli) (Grades 3-8) Queen of heaven, rejoice, alleluia. For He whom you were chosen to bear, alleluia, Has arisen as He said, alleluia. Pray to God for us, alleluia. Rejoice and be glad, Virgin Mary, alleluia, For the Lord is truly risen, alleluia. Let us pray: Father, you were pleased to give joy to the world through the resurrection of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Grant, we beseech you, that through the mediation of the Virgin Mary, His mother, we may come to possess the joys of life everlasting, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
