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.
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.
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.
Arise with me in the morning,
travel with me through each day,
welcome me on my arrival,
be with me all the way.
You’ve given me another day,
untouched and freshly new,
so here I am to ask You, Lord,
if You’ll renew me too.
Forgive the many errors that I made yesterday
and help me try again, Lord, to walk closer in Your way.
I need You, Lord, beside me; I can’t make it on my own,
so take my hand, and hold it tight
so I don’t walk alone.
Christ be with me. Christ be beside me.
Christ be before me. Christ be behind me.
Christ at my right hand. Christ at my left hand.
Christ be with me everywhere I go.
Christ be my friend, for ever and ever. Amen

with the saints above in Heaven

whose blood was shed for Jesus’ love
to keep our souls away from sin,
protect thy children from above.

HAIL HOLY QUEEN
Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy,
hail, 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 vale 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!

Behold the handmaid of the Lord:
Be it done unto me according to Thy word.
And the Word was made Flesh:
And dwelt among us.
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 Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts;
that we, to whom the incarnation of Christ, Thy 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.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known
that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help,
or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee,
O Virgin of virgins, my mother;
to thee do I come,
before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in thy mercy hear and answer me.

A PRAYER FOR THOSE WHO HAVE DIED
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
(Matthew 7: 7,8)
