Λ Creed of the Apostles

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 again from the dead;

He ascended into Heaven,
sitteth at the right hand of God,
the Father Almighty;
from thence He shall 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.

Λ Nicene Creed / Credo

I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.

I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.

I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Credo in unum Deum, Patrem omnipoténtem,
factórem cœli et terræ, visibílium ómnium et invisibílium.
Et in unum Dóminum Jesum Christum, Fílium Dei unigénitum.
Et ex Patre natum ante ómnia saécula.
Deum de Deo, lumen de lúmine, Deum verum de Deo vero.
Génitum, non factum, consubstantiálem* Patri per quem ómnia facta sunt.
Qui propter nos hómines et propter nostram salútem descéndit de cœlis.
Et incarnatus est de Spiritu Sancto ex Maria Virgine et HOMO FACTUS EST.
Crucifíxus étiam pro nobis, sub Póntio Piláto passus, et sepúltus est.
Et resurréxit tértia die, secúndum Scriptúras.
Et ascéndit in cœlum : sedet ad déxteram Patris.
Et íterum ventúrus est cum glória judicáre vivos et mórtuos cuius regni non erit finis.

Et in Spíritum Sanctum, Dóminum et vivificántem, qui ex Patre, Filióque procédit.
Qui cum Patre, et Fílio simul adoratur, et conglorificátur : qui locútus est per Prophétas.
Et unam, sanctam, cathólicam, et apostólicam Ecclésiam.
Confíteor unum baptísma in remissiónem peccatórum.
Et expécto resurrectiónem mortuórum et vitam ventúri saéculi.

Amen.

Λ I confess to almighty God / Confiteor

I confess to almighty God
and to you, my brothers and sisters,
that I have greatly sinned

in my thoughts and in my words,
in what I have done
and in what I have failed to do,
through my fault,
through my fault,
through my most grievous fault;
therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin,
all the Angels and Saints,
and you, my brothers and sisters,
to pray for me to the Lord our God.

Λ Act of Faith

O my God, I firmly believe that you are 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 have revealed them, who can neither deceive nor be deceived.

Amen.

Λ Act of Hope

O my God! relying on Thy infinite goodness and promises, I hope to obtain pardon of my sins, the help of Thy grace, and life everlasting, through the merits of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Redeemer.

Λ Act of Charity

O my God! I love Thee above all things, with my whole heart and soul, because Thou art all-good and worthy of all love. I love my neighbor as myself for the love of Thee. I forgive all who have injured me, and ask pardon of all whom I have injured.

Λ Act of Contrition

O my God! I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins because I dread the loss of Heaven and the pains of Hell; but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, Who art all-good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to confess my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life.

Amen.

Λ Angelus

Amen.

Λ Salve Regina

Salve, Regina, mater misericordiae.
Vita, dulcedo et spes nostra, salve.

Ad te clamamus, exsules filii Evae.
Ad te suspiramus,
gementes et flentes
in hac lacrimarum valle.

Eja ergo, advocata nostra,
illos tuos misericordes oculos ad nos converte.
Et Jesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui,
nobis post hoc exilium ostende.

O clemens, o pia, o dulcis Virgo Maria !


Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy!
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 valley, of tears.

Turn, then, most gracious advocate,
thine eyes of mercy toward us;
and after this our exile show unto us the
blessed fruit of thy womb Jesus;

O clement, O loving, O sweet virgin Mary.

Λ Canticle of Zechariah (Lk 1,68-79)

Blessed be the Lord,
The God of Israel;
He has come to His people and set them free.

He has raised up for us a mighty Saviour,
Born of the house of His servant David.

Through His holy prophets He promised of old
That He would save us from our enemies,
From the hands of all who hate us.

He promised to show mercy to our fathers
And to remember His holy Covenant.

This was the oath He swore to our father Abraham:
To set us free from the hands of our enemies,
Free to worship Him without fear,
Holy and righteous in His sight
All the days of our life.

You, My child shall be called
The prophet of the Most High,
For you will go before the Lord to prepare His way,
To give his people knowledge of salvation
By the forgiveness of their sins.

In the tender compassion of our Lord
The dawn from on high shall break upon us,
to shine on those who dwell in darkness
And the shadow of death,
And to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Λ Magnificat (Lk 1,46-55)

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour;
for he has looked with favour on his lowly servant.

From this day all generations will call me blessed;
the Almighty has done great things for me and holy is his name.

He has mercy on those who fear him,
in every generation.

He has shown strength with his arm
and has scattered the proud in their conceit,

He has cast down the mighty from their thrones
and lifted up the lowly.

He has filled the hungry with good things
and sent the rich away empty.

He has come to the help of his servant Israel,
for He has remembered His promise of mercy,

The promise made to our fathers,
to Abraham and his children for ever.

Λ Canticle of Simeon (Lk 2,29-32)

Lord, now you let your servant go in peace;
Your word has been fulfilled.

My eyes have seen the salvation
You have prepared in the sight of every people,

A light to reveal you to the nations
and the glory of your people, Israel.

Glory be to the Father,
And to the Son,
And to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now,
And ever shall be,
World without end.

Amen.

Let us pray.

O Lord Jesus Christ, You have said, "Ask and you shall receive, seek, and you shall find, knock, and it shall be opened to you." Grant, we beg of You, to us who ask it, the gift of Your most divine love, that we may ever love You with our whole heart, in word and deed, and never cease praising You.

Give us, O Lord, as much a lasting fear as a lasting love of Your Holy Name, for You, who live and are King for ever and ever, never fail to govern those whom You have solidly established in Your love.

Amen.
