Appendix B. Traditional Catholic Prayers • 533

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. Amen.

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. Amen.

Morning Offering

O Jesus, through the Immaculate

Heart of Mary,

I offer you my prayers, works, joys

and sufferings of this day

for all the intentions of your Sacred

the Mass throughout the world,

for the salvation of souls, the

reparation for sins, the reunion of

all Christians,

and in particular for the intentions

of the Holy Father this month.


Act of Faith

O my God, I firmly believe that

you are one God in three divine

Persons, Father, Son, and Holy

Spirit. I believe that your divine Son

became man and died for our sins

and that he will come to judge the

living and the dead. I believe these
