Prayers  -  on the Cross


You expired, Jesus, but the source of life gushed forth for souls,

and the ocean of mercy opened up for the whole world.

O Fount of Life, unfathomable Divine Mercy,

envelop the whole world and empty Yourself out upon us.


O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us,

I trust in You!


O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us,

I trust in You!

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

Pater noster, qui es in caelis:

sanctificetur Nomen Tuum;

adveniat Regnum Tuum;

fiat voluntas Tua,

sicut in caelo, et in terra.            

Panem nostrum cotidianum da nobis hodie;

et dimitte nobis debita nostra,

Sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris;

et ne nos inducas in tentationem;

sed libera nos a malo.

Amen

- The Apostles' Creed -

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,

Creator of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ,

His only Son, our Lord,

                                       Bow /kneel

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,

born of the Virgin Mary,

                                    end of bow/kneel

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 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 life everlasting.    

Amen


Credo in Deum Patrem omnipotentem,

Creatorem coeli et terrae.

Et in Jesum Christum,

Filium ejus unicum, Dominum nostrum,


qui conceptus est de Spiritu Sancto,

natus ex Maria virgine,


passus sub Pontio Pilato,

crucifixus, mortuus, et sepultus,

descendit ad infernos,

tertia die resurrexit a mortuis,

ascendit ad coelos,

sedet ad dexteram

Dei Patris omnipotentis,

inde venturus

est judicare vivos et mortuos.

 

Credo

in Spiritum Sanctum,

sanctam ecclesiam catholicam,

sanctorum communionem,

remissionem peccatorum,

carnis resurrectionem

et vitam aeternam.              

Amen

Prayer to St Michael the Archangel

(authentic long version)

Raccolta 1903, p. 364-366, Pope Leo XIII (1888)

 

Most glorious prince of the heavenly hosts, Archangel St. Michael, defend us in the battle and in the tremendous struggle we carry on against the Principalities and Powers, against the rulers of the world of darkness and all evil spirits. Come to the help of man, whom God created immortal, fashioned to his own image and likeness, and rescued at a great price from the tyranny of the devil. With the great army of the holy angels fight to-day the battle of the Lord as thou didst of old fight against Lucifer, the leader of the proud, and his apostate angels, who were powerless against thee, and they had no longer a place in heaven ; and that monster/ the old serpent who is called the devil and Satan, that seduces the whole world, was cast into hell with his angels. But now that first enemy and homicide has regained his insolent boldness. Taking on the appearance of an angel of light, he has invaded the earth, and, with his whole train of evil spirits, he is prowling about among men, striving to blot out the name of God and of his Christ, to capture, to destroy, to drag to eternal perdition the souls destined to the crown of eternal glory. That malignant dragon is pouring abroad, like a foul stream, into the souls of men of ruined intellect and corrupt heart the poison of his wickedness, the spirit of lying, of impiety and blasphemy, the pestilent breath of impurity and of all vice and iniquity. Most cunning enemies have filled with bitterness and drenched with gall the Church, the Spouse of the Lamb without spot, and have lifted impious hands against all that is most sacred in it. Even in the holy place where the See of Blessed Peter and the chair of truth was set up to enlighten the world, they have raised the abominable throne of their impiety with the iniquitous hope that the Shepherd may be stricken and the flock scattered abroad.

Arise, then, unconquerable Prince, defend the people of God against the assaults of the reprobate spirits, and give them the victory. Holy Church reveres thee as its guardian and patron ; it glories in thee as its defender against the malignant powers of hell ; to thee God has committed the souls that are to be conveyed to the seats of the Blessed in eternal happiness. Pray, then, to the God of peace, that he may put Satan under our feet, so completely vanquished that he may no longer be able to hold men in bondage and work harm to the Church. Offer up our prayers before the Most High, so that the mercies of the Lord may prevent us, and lay hold of the dragon, the old serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and hurl him bound in chains into the abyss where he may no longer seduce the souls of men.

Amen.

 

V. Behold the Cross of the Lord, fly ye hostile ranks.

 

R. The Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, has conquered.

 

V. May thy mercies, O Lord, be fulfilled in us.

 

R. As we have hoped in thee.

 

V. Lord, hear my prayer.

 

R. And let my cry come unto thee.

 

Let us pray

O God, and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, we call upon thy holy name and humbly beseech thy clemency, that, through the intercession of the ever immaculate Virgin and our Mother Mary, and of the glorious Archangel Saint Michael, thou wouldst vouchsafe to help us against Satan and all the other unclean spirits that are prowling about the world to the great peril of the human race and the loss of souls.

Amen.

 

His Holiness, Leo XIII., Motu Proprio, September 25, 1888,

granted to the faithful who recite the above prayer

An indulgence of three hundred days, once a day.
