Educating Our Kids

  • Catholic Prayers

    In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

  • Hail Mary

    Hail, Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
    Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
    Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners,
    now and at the hour of our death.

  • The 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;
    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.

  • The Nicene Creed

    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.

  • The Lord’s Prayer

    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.

  • Glory Be

    Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
    As it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever.

  • Hail Holy Queen

    Hail, Holy Queen, 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 vale of tears.
    Turn, then, most gracious advocate,
    your eyes of mercy toward us;
    and after this, our exile,
    show to us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus.
    O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!

  • Act of Contrition

    My God,
    I am sorry for my sins
    with all my heart.
    In choosing to do wrong
    and failing to do good,
    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.
