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 Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified; died, and was buried. He descended into Hell; the third day He arose 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 Ghost, the holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
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 our death. Amen.
Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was, it is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
O my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell, and lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of Thy Mercy.

Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel
Holy Michael Archangel, defend us in the day of battle; be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray: and do thou, Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God thrust down to hell Satan and all wicked spirits, who wander through the world for the ruin of souls.
Prayer to Saint Joseph
To thee, O blessed Joseph, we fly in our tribulation and, after imploring the help of thy holy Spouse, with confidence, we ask also for thy intercession. By the affection which united thee to the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God, and by the paternal love with which thou didst embrace the Child Jesus, we beseech thee to look kindly upon the inheritance which Jesus Christ acquired by His precious blood, and with thy powerful aid to help us in our needs.
Protect, most careful guardian of the Holy Family, the chosen people of Jesus Christ. Keep us, loving Father, from all pestilence of error and corruption. From thy place in heaven be thou mercifully with us, most powerful protector, in this warfare with the powers of darkness; and, thou didst once rescue the Child Jesus from the imminent danger of death, so now defend the holy Church of God from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity. Guard each of us under thy constant patronage, so that, sustained by thy example and help, we may live a holy life, die a holy death, and obtain the everlasting hapiness of heaven. Amen.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory be
Prayer for Priests
(1st Thursday of the Month)
O God, who didst love thy only-begotten Son from all eternity, and didst will him to become at once the Great High Priest and the Saving Victim for the sins of the whole world, pour forth thy Holy Spirit, we beseech thee, upon thy servants, the priests of his holy Church, and grant that in these days of tribulation there may be a great increase in the number and sanctity of vocations to the holy office of the priesthood, and a growing fervour on the part of all those who offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and minister to the care of souls. Through Christ our Lord.
O Jesus, our Great High Priest, may all the love and help and merciful compassion of thy Sacred Heart be with thy priests in their life and work, especially in the sacred ministry of the altar. And grant to thy priests who have departed this life everlasting rest and the reward of their labours for the salvation of souls. Who livest and reignest for ever.
Jesus, eternal Priest, keep these thy servants within the shelter of thy Sacred Heart.
Mary, conceived without sin, send us good priests.
Prayer to Our Lady of the Priesthood
(by Father Thévenin)
Virgin Mary, Mother of Christ-Priest
Mother of all the priests of the whole world
You have a particular love for priests,
Because they are the living images of your Unique Son
You helped Jesus throughout your life on earth
And you still help him in Heaven.
We implore you: Pray for priests!
“Pray to the Father that He sends labourers to the harvest”
Pray that we always have priests
Who will give us the Sacraments
Explain to us Christ’s Gospel
And teach us to become true children of God.
Virgin Mary, ask God to give us Priests
Who we need so much
And since your Heart has such power over him
Obtain for us, O Mary, Priests that are saints!
Prayer for Priests
(by St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus)
O Jesus, eternal Priest, keep your priests within the shelter of Your Sacred Heart, where none may touch them. Keep unstained their anointed hands, which daily touch Your Sacred Body. Keep unsullied their lips, daily purpled with your Precious Blood. Keep pure and unearthly their hearts, sealed with the sublime mark of the priesthood. Let Your holy love surround them and shield them from the world’s contagion. Bless their labors with abundant fruit and may the souls to whom they minister be their joy and consolation here and in heaven their beautiful and everlasting crown.
Prayer for Priests
(Pope Benedict XVI)
Lord Jesus Christ, eternal High Priest, you offered yourself to the Father on the altar of the cross and through the outpouring of the Holy Ghost gave your priestly people a share in your redeeming sacrifice. Hear our prayer for the sanctification of our priests. Grant that all who are ordained to the ministerial priesthood may be ever more conformed to you, the Divine Master. May they preach the Gospel with pure heart and clear conscience. Let them be shepherds according to your own heart, single-minded in service to you and to the Church, and shining examples of a holy, simple, and joyful life. Through the prayers of the Blessed Virgin Mary, your Mother and ours, draw all priests and the flocks entrusted to their care to the fullness of eternal life where you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Ghost, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Plea to the Everliving God for the unborn
Lord God, our Eternal Father, we come to Thy Throne full of awe and reverence at Thy saving power. Through our Saviour Jesus Christ, we beg Thee to help us stop the widespread slaughter of unborn children in our land. May our love for our innocent brothers and sisters and their parents closely resemble the love that exists in the Holy Family. Help us provide all human life with protection under our civil laws. We know that through the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe, chosen Spouse of the Holy Ghost, our request will be granted, through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
(St. Bernard of Clairvaux)
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. Amen.
Prayer for England
O blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God and our most gentle Queen and Mother, look down in mercy upon England thy Dowry and upon us all who greatly hope and trust in thee. By thee it was that Jesus our Saviour and our hope was given unto the world; and He has given thee to us that we might hope still more.
Plead for us thy children, whom thou didst receive and accept at the foot of the Cross, O sorrowful Mother. Intercede for our separated brethren, that with us in the one true fold they may be united to the chief Shepherd, the Vicar of thy Son.
Pray for us all, dear Mother, that by faith fruitful in good works we may all deserve to see and praise God, together with thee, in our heavenly home.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy upon us.
O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee.
