Catholic Prayers
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. Amen.

Start by making the sign of the Cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the
Holy Spirit. Amen.

Then recite the Creed:I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, and
in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord.  He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the
Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He
descended into hell. On the third day He rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at
the right hand of God the Father Almighty. 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.

Then say 1 "Our Father", 3 "Hail Mary's" for the virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity; and
then 1 "Glory Be":

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. Amen.

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 death. Amen.

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.

The Rosary is divided into three parts, each having five mysteries. While meditating on
the Mysteries, recite:
1 "Our Father"
10 "Hail Mary's" and
1 "Glory Be"  

for each Mystery.  

After each Mystery the
"Fatima Prayer" is said.

Fatima Prayer:  O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fire of hell, lead all souls to
heaven, especially those who are in most need of Thy mercy.

All together this makes up one decade.

After the completion of the five mysteries (five decades), the "Hail Holy Queen" is said  

Hail Holy Queen Prayer:  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 us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O
clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.  That we may be
made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Prayer for the Sick

Watch, O Lord, with those who wake, or watch, or weep tonight, and give your angels charge
over those who sleep.  Tend your sick ones, O Lord Christ.  Rest your weary ones.  Bless your
dying ones.  Soothe your suffering ones.  Pity your afflicted ones. Shield your joyous ones.  And
for all your love's sake.  Amen.

Saint Augustine
