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 amongst 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
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. He rose again on the third day, ascended into Heaven, and 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
Let us pray:
O Almighty and Eternal God, have mercy on Thy Servant, Pope N, and direct him by Thy mercy into the way of everlasting salvation. May he desire by Thy grace those things that are agreeable to Thee, and perform them with all his strength. Through Christ our Lord. Amen
A PRAYER TO SAINT GREGORY VII, POPE AND CONFESSOR:
O invincible defender of Holy Church’s freedom, Saint Gregory of great renown, by that firmness thou didst show in maintaining the Church’s rights against all her enemies, stretch forth from Heaven thy mighty arm, we beseech thee, to comfort her and defend her in the fearful battle she must ever wage with the powers of darkness. Do thou, in an especial manner, give strength in this dread conflict to the venerable Pontiff who has fallen heir not only to thy throne, but likewise to the fearlessness of thy mighty heart; obtain for him the joy of beholding his holy endeavors crowned by the triumph of the Church and the return of the lost sheep into the right path. Grant, finally, that all may understand how vain it is to strive against that Faith which has always conquered and is destined always to conquer: “this is the victory which overcometh the world, our faith.” This is the prayer that we raise to thee with one accord; and we are confident, that, after thou hast heard our prayers on earth, thou wilt one day call us to stand with thee in Heaven, before the Eternal High Priest, Who with the Father and the Holy Spirit, liveth and reigneth, world without end. Amen.
A PRAYER TO ST. PETER, PRINCE OF THE APOSTLES:
O glorious St. Peter, who, for thy confession of the True Faith, wast rewarded with the singular privilege and supreme dignity of Primacy over the Church, and upon whom was given the Keys to the Kingdom of Heaven and a crown of princely honour; look with clemency upon the Roman Pontiff, N, who by Divine Providence has been raised to the same supreme dignity, and who sitteth upon thy holy Chair of light and truth. Guide him, we beseech thee, noble St. Peter, that like thee he may never fear to speak the truth, even if the same shall be his suffering. Make him to rejoice in his sufferings, which the Lord shall be pleased to visit him, that for the salvation of the Holy Roman Church, which thou lovest with all thy heart, he may be rewarded in Heaven with a crown of everlasting life. O St. Peter, guide this holy Church of thine, and make Her to rest upon those sweet shores of Heaven! Confess once more the Faith of Jesus Christ, and confirm thy brethren in the Catholic Faith. And may thou, most mighty Prince of the Apostles, regard the lowliness of thy servants, and grant unto them burning zeal for the Faith, and make us jealous only for the Sacred Honour of Our Lord and King, Jesus Christ, Who with the Father and the Holy Spirit, liveth and reigneth, world without end. Amen
