The Apostles’ Creed

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ his only Son; who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary; suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried; he descended into hell; the third day he rose from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from whence 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.

The Anima Christi

(which we sometimes sing as ‘Soul of my Saviour’)

Soul of Christ, be my sanctification, Body of Christ, be my salvation,

Blood of Christ, fill all my veins, Water from Christ’s side, wash out my stains.

Passion of Christ, my comfort be. O good Jesu, listen to me.

In thy wounds I fain would hide, Ne’er to be parted from thy side.

Guard me should the foe assail me, Call me when my life shall fail me.

Bid me come to thee above, With all thy saints to sing thy love,

World without end. Amen.

  The Memorare

 Remember, O most loving Virgin Mary, that it is a thing unheard of that anyone ever had recourse to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession and was left forsaken. Inspired by this confidence in thy goodness, therefore, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee do I come, before thee I stand, a sorrowful sinner. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my words, but in thy clemency hear and answer my prayer.
