The Stations of the Cross

Our Father

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


The Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with thee;
blessed art thou among women,

of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now
and at the hour of our death.


Hail, Holy Queen

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy!
Our life, our sweetness, and our hope!
To thee do we cry, poor banished
children of Eve, to thee do we send
up our sighs, mourning and weeping
in this valley, of tears.
Turn, then, most gracious advocate,
thine eyes of mercy toward us; and
after this our exile show unto us the
blessed fruit of thy womb Jesus;
O clement, O loving, O sweet virgin Mary.


Act of Contrition

O my God, I am heartily sorry for
having offended you, and I detest
all my sins, because of Your just
punishments, but most of all because
they offend You, my God, who are
all-good and deserving of all my love.
I firmly resolve, with the help of
Your grace, to sin no more and to
avoid the near occasion of sin.


Glory be to the Father

Glory be to the Father and to
the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now
and ever shall be, world without

Prayer To Your Guardian Angel

To light and guard, to rule and guide.

and let perpetual light shine upon them.
May they rest in peace.

The Nine First Fridays

Devotions to the Sacred Heart
The promises of The Sacred Heart of Jesus to Saint Margaret Mary (1647-1690): "I promise you, in the excessive mercy of my Heart that my all powerful love will grant to all those who receive Holy Communion on the first Friday for nine consecutive months, the grace of final repentance; they shall not die in my disgrace nor without receiving tile sacraments; my divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in that last moment."

Conditions required:

To make nine Holy Communions;

on the first Friday of the month (confession required within eight days);

for nine consecutive months, without interruption;

with the proper disposition;

with the intention of making reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and to obtain the fruit of this great promise.

Many are the promises that the Sacred Heart of Jesus has made to His Servant St. Margaret Mary, in favor of His devoted ones, as is evident from her writings. The principal ones are as follows:

I will give them all the graces necessary for their state of life.

I will give peace in their families.

I will console them in all their troubles.

I will he their refuge in life and especially in death.

I will abundantly bless all their undertakings.

Sinners shall find in my Heart the source and infinite ocean of mercy.

Tepid souls shall become fervent.

Fervent souls shall rise speedily to great perfect ion

I will bless those places wherein the image of my Sacred heart shall be exposed and venerated.

I will give to priests the power to touch the most hardened hearts.

Persons who propagate this devotion shall have their names eternally written in my Heart.

In the excess of the mercy of my heart, I promise you that my all powerful love will grant to all those who will receive Communion on the First Fridays, for nine consecutive months, the grace of final repentance: they will not die in my displeasure, nor without receiving the sacraments; and my Heart will be their secure refuge in that last hour.

The First Five Saturdays of the Month

The great promise of Our Lady of Fatima

The Blessed Virgin appeared to Lucy on 13 June 1917, at Fatima, giving her the great mission of propagating the devotion of the first five Saturdays of the month, making known her "Great Promise.'' Our Lady showed her heart, saying:

"...Behold my heart in the midst of thorns that ungrateful persons, at every instant, press on it with their blasphemy and ingratitude. At least you console me, and tell all men that I promise to help, in the hour of death, with the graces necessary for salvation, whoever the first Saturday of each month for five consecutive months will go to confession, receive Holy Communion, say five decades of the rosary and keep me company for fifteen minutes, meditating the mysteries of the rosary, with the intention of making reparation to me."

Conditions required:

Confession (within eight days).

Holy Communion.

Recitation of a third part of the rosary (five decades).

Fifteen minutes of meditation on the mysteries.

Five consecutive months without interruption.

These five first Saturdays must be made with the intention of making reparation to console the Immaculate Heart of Mary, saddened by the indifference and ingratitude of so many, in a spirit of humility and sorrow for sins.

Prayer to Saint Joseph

To thee, O Blessed Joseph, we have recourse in our tribulations, and while imploring the aid of thy most holy Spouse, we confidently invoke thy patronage also. By that love which united thee to the Immaculate Virgin, Mother of God, and by the fatherly affection with which thou didst embrace the Infant Jesus, we humbly beseech thee graciously to regard the inheritance which Jesus Christ purchased with His Blood and to help us in our necessities, by thy powerful intercession.

Protect, I most provident Guardian of the Holy Family, the chosen children of Jesus Christ; ward off from us, O most loving Father, all taint of error and corruption; graciously assist us from Heaven, O most power protector, in our struggle with the powers of darkness; and as thou didst once rescue the Child Jesus from imminent peril to His life, so now defend the Holy Church of God from the snares of her enemies and from all adversity.

Shield each one of us with thy unceasing patronage that, imitating thy example and supported by thy aid, we may be enabled to live a good life, die a holy death, and secure everlasting happiness in Heaven.


Prayer for the Souls in Purgatory

Memorare Prayer to Our Lady - Indulgences

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that any one who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother! To thee 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.

- Refugium peccatorum, Ora pro nobis - Say the Hail Mary
- Consolatrix afflictorum, Ora pro nobis - Say the Hail Mary
- Auxilium Christianorum, Ora pro nobis - Say the Hail Mary

If this prayer is said once, it gives an indulgence of three years to a soul in Purgatory.
If this prayer is told once a day, for one month, it gives the plenary indulgence for a soul in Purgatory.

Plenary indulgence for the Souls in Purgatory

For ages, millions of pilgrims have been able to obtain remission of punishment due to sins, thanks to St. Francis (usual conditions apply: visit a church so designated with Portiuncula Indulgence on August 2, go to confession, receive Holy Communion and pray for the intentions of the Holy Father.

A plenary indulgence, applicable only to the Souls in Purgatory, is granted to the faithful, who on November 2, the day dedicated to the Commemoration of All the Faithful Departed, piously visit a church. In visiting the church it is required that one Our Father and the Creed be recited. As usual, to acquire a plenary indulgence it is necessary also to fulfill the following three conditions: sacramental Confession, Eucharistic communion, and prayer for the intention of the Holy Father. The three conditions may be fulfilled several days before or after the performance of the visit; it is, however, fitting that communion be received and the prayer for the intention of the Holy Father be said on the same day as the visit

Prayer of the Holy Father Benedict XVI to the Infant Jesus of Prague

O my Lord Jesus,
we gaze on you as a baby
and believe that you are the Son of God,
who became man
in the womb of the Virgin Mary,
through the working of the Holy Spirit.

Just as at Bethlehem,
we too, with Mary, Joseph,
the angels and the shepherds,
adore you and acknowledge you
as our only Savior.

You became poor
to enrich us with your poverty.
Grant that we may never forget the poor
and all those who suffer.

Protect our families,
bless all the children of the world,
and grant that the love you brought us
may always reign amongst us
and lead us to a happier life.

Grant, O Jesus, that all
may recognize the truth of your birth,
so that they may know
that you came to bring
to the whole human family
light, joy and peace.

You who live and reign
with God the Father
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.


Prayer of Father Cyril

O Infant Jesus, I run to You,
begging You through Your Holy Mother
to save me in this need
(you may name it here),
for I truly and firmly believe
that Your Divinity can defend me.
Full of trust I hope in You
to obtain Your holy grace.
I love You with all my heart,
I am painfully sorry for my sins
and on my knees I beg You,
o Little Jesus, to free me from them.
My resolution is to improve
and never more to offend You.
Therefore, I offer myself to You,
ready to suffer everything for You
and to serve You faithfully.
I will love my neighbour as myself
from my heart for the love of You.
O Little Jesus, I adore You,
o Mighty Child, I implore You,
save me in this need
(you can mention it here),
that I may enjoy You eternally,
with Mary and Joseph see You
and with all the angels adore You.

Prayer to Saint Lucy by Pope John XXIII

Novena to Saint Thérèse of Lisieux

(Saint Thérèse of Lisieux - The "Little Flower") Virgin and Doctor of the Church feast day October 1'ST.

Saint Thérèse, you who are a beloved child of God and who boldly trusted God's mercy, teach me how to let myself be loved by God, who is love. Help me to fall into His arms like the prodigal son, and to give back to God my life and my death. Help me to open myself freely to His tenderness, so as not to take away from His Father's heart the joy of loving me.

Our Father

Saint Thérèse, you who are in love with Jesus, you were filled with passion for the Gospel and the Eucharist. Revive in me a thirst for the Word of God. May it light my path on this "little way" of trust where, with you, I take the elevator of love. May your motto "living in love" free my deep desire. In this way, like you, all I want is to love Jesus and help others love Him.

Hail Mary

Saint Thérèse, you who are embraced by the Holy Spirit, you have become the Spirit in my prayer and my actions. Prepare me to welcome the Spirit humbly in the little things of every day with Mary, who smiled at you in your time of testing. May your hope inspire me in times when I am not able to love.

Glory be to the Father

Prayer for Vocations

Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus, you who have been rightly proclaimed the patroness of Catholic missions throughout the world, remember the burning desire which you manifested here on earth to plant the cross of Christ on every shore and to preach the Gospel even until the end of the world. I ask you, according to your promise, to assist all priests, missionaries, and the whole Church of God. Help us to implement the new evangelization which our world and our diocese[s] so badly need. Pray for us that Jesus will inspire in the hearts of our youth a burning desire to serve Him as priests, sisters, and missionaries so that the Gospel may radiate anew to dispel the darkness of sin and death.

Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus, Doctor of the Church, pray for us.

But the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of difficult and desperate cases. Pray for me who am so miserable. Make use, I implore you, of that particular privilege accorded to you to bring visible and speedy help where help was almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need that I may receive the consolation and help of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, particularly — (here make your request) — and that I may bless God with you and all the elect throughout all eternity.

I promise you, O blessed JUDE, to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron and do all in my power to encourage devotion to you. Amen.

Saint Jude, pray for us and for all who honor you and invoke your aid.

(Say the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory be to the Father, 3 times.)

O Saint Jude Thaddeus: cousin of Jesus Christ, glorious apostle and martyr, renowned for your virtues and miracles, faithful and prompt intercessor of all who honor you and trust in you, You are a powerful patron and helper in grievous afflictions. I come to you and entreat you from the depths of my heart to come to my aid with your powerful intercession, for you have received from God the privilege to assist with your manifest help those who almost despair of all hope. Look down upon me, my life is a life of crosses; my days are days of tribulation; and my paths are strewn with thorns, and scarcely one moment passes but is witness of my tears and sighs. And withal, my soul is enveloped in darkness, disquietude, discouragement, mistrust; yes, sometimes even a kind of despair preys upon my soul. Divine Providence seems lost to my sight, and Faith seems to falter in my heart.

Overwhelmed by these thoughts, I see myself surrounded by a dark cloud. You can not forsake me in this sad plight. I will not depart from you until you have heard me. O hasten to my aid. I will be grateful to you all my life. I will honor you as my special patron, I will thank God for the graces bestowed upon you and will propagate your honor according to my power. Amen.

Saint Jude Thaddeus, pray for us. And for all who invoke your aid.

Prayers in English...How To Reciete the Holy Rosary


Credo in un solo Dio, Padre Onnipotente, creatore del cielo e della terra, di tutte le cose visibili e invisibili.
Credo in un solo Signore Gesù Cristo unigenito figlio di Dio nato dal Padre prima di tutti i secoli. Dio da Dio, Luce da Luce, Dio vero da Dio vero, generato, non creato, dalla stessa sostanza del Padre. Per mezzo di Lui tutte le cose sono state create. Per noi uomini e per la nostra salvezza discese dal cielo e per opera dello Spirito Santo si è incarnato nel seno della Vergine Maria e si è fatto uomo. Fu crocifisso per noi sotto Ponzio Pilato, morì e fu sepolto e il terzo giorno è resuscitato secondo le Scritture ed è salito al Cielo e siede alle destra del Padre e di nuovo verrà nella gloria per giudicare i vivi e i morti ed il suo Regno non avrà fine.
Credo nello Spirito Santo che è Signore e dà la vita e procede dal Padre e dal Figlio e con il Padre ed il Figlio è adorato e glorificato e ha parlato per mezzo dei profeti.
Credo la Chiesa una, santa, cattolica e apostolica.
Professo un solo battesimo per il perdono dei peccati e aspetto la resurrezione dei morti e la vita del mondo che verrà. Amen



Padre Nostro che sei nei Cieli, sia santificato il tuo nome, venga il tuo regno e sia fatta la tua volontà come in Cielo così in terra. Dacci oggi il nostro pane quotidiano e rimetti a noi i nostri debiti come noi li rimettiamo ai nostri debitori e non ci indurre in tentazione ma liberaci dal male. Amen



Ave o Maria, piena di grazia, il Signore è con te. Tu sei la benedetta fra le donne e benedetto il frutto del tuo seno Gesù. Santa Maria, Madre di Dio, prega per noi peccatori adesso e nell'ora della nostra morte. Amen



Salve Regina, madre di misericordia, vita dolcezza e speranza nostra, salve. A te ricorriamo noi esuli figli di Eva; a te sospiriamo gementi a piangenti in questa valle di lacrime. Orsù dunque, avvocata nostra, rivolgi a noi gli occhi tuoi misericordiosi e mostraci dopo questo esilio Gesù, il frutto benedetto del tuo seno. O clemente, o pia, o dolce Vergine Maria.



Mio Dio mi pento e mi dolgo con tutto il cuore dei miei peccati perché peccando ho meritato i tuoi castighi e molto più perché ho offeso Te infinitamente buono e degno di essere amato sopra ogni cosa. Propongo col Tuo santo aiuto di non offenderti mai più e di fuggire le occasioni prossime di peccato, Signore misericordia, perdonami.



Gloria al Padre, al Figlio ed allo Spirito Santo, come era nel principio e ora e sempre nei secoli dei secoli.Amen



Angelo di Dio che sei il mio custode, illumina, custodisci, reggi e governa a me che ti fui affidato dalla Pietà Celeste.Amen



L'Eterno riposo dona loro o Signore e splenda ad essi la Luce Perpetua, riposino in pace. Amen

· S. Giuseppe, padre putativo del S. Cuore di Gesù, prega per noi.
Recitare Salve o Regina


Mostrando il suo Cuore a Santa Margherita Maria Alacoque (1647-1690), Gesù disse: "Ecco quel cuore che ha

tanto amato gli uomini e dai quali non riceve che ingratitudini e disprezzo...".
In diverse apparizioni alla stessa Santa, Gesù fece le seguenti promesse per coloro che avessero onorato il suo Cuore. La Santa riporta le promesse di Gesù nelle sue lettere.

Darò loro tutte le grazie necessarie al loro stato

Porterò' soccorso alle famiglie che si trovano in difficoltà e metterò la pace nelle famiglie divise

Li consolerò nelle loro afflizioni

Sarò il loro sicuro rifugio in vita e specialmente in punto di morte

Spargerò abbondanti benedizioni sopra tutte le loro opere

I peccatori troveranno nel mio Cuore la fonte e l'oceano della Misericordia

Riporterò le comunità religiose e i singoli fedeli al loro primo fervore

Le anime fervorose giungeranno in breve a grande perfezione

Benedirò i luoghi dove l'immagine del mio Sacro Cuore verrà esposta e onorata

A tutti coloro che lavoreranno per la salvezza delle anime darò il dono di commuovere i cuori più induriti

Il nome di coloro che propagheranno la devozione al mio Sacro Cuore sarà scritto nel mio Cuore e non verrà mai cancellato

Io ti prometto nell'eccesso della Misericordia del mio Cuore, che il mio Amore Onnipotente concederà a tutti quelli che si comunicheranno al PRIMO VENERDÌ' del mese per nove mese consecutivi, la grazia della penitenza finale. Essi non moriranno in mia disgrazia, né senza ricevere i Sacramenti, e il mio Cuore sarà loro asilo sicuro in quell'ora estrema.

Il Cuore Immacolato di Maria: I PRIMI CINQUE SABATI

La Madonna apparendo a Fatima il 13 giugno 1917, tra l'altro disse a Lucia: "Gesù vuole servirsi di te per farmi conoscere ed amare. Egli vuole stabilire nel mondo la devozione al mio Cuore Immacolato. - Guarda figlia mia, il mio Cuore circondato di spine che gli uomini ingrati infliggono continuamente con bestemmie e ingratitudini. Consolami almeno tu e fa sapere questo:"A tutti coloro che per cinque mesi, al primo sabato, riceveranno la santa Comunione, reciteranno il rosario e mi faranno compagnia per quindici minuti meditando i Misteri, con l'intenzione di offrirmi riparazioni, prometto di assisterli nell'ora della morte con tutte le grazie necessarie alla salvezza."

Per realizzare tale progetto di Maria occorrono le seguenti condizioni:

Confessione - fatta entro otto giorni precedenti, con l'intenzione di riparare le offese fatte al Cuore Immacolato di Maria. Se uno nella confessione dimentica di presentare tale intenzione, può' formularla nella confessione successiva;

Comunione - fatta in grazia di Dio il Primo Sabato del mese, con la stessa intenzione della confessione;
La confessione e la comunione devono ripetersi per cinque mesi consecutivi, senza interruzione altrimenti bisogna ricominciare.

Recitare la corona del Rosario, almeno la terza parte, con la stessa intenzione della confessione;

Meditazione - per un quarto d'ora fare compagnia alla Vergine meditando sui misteri del rosario.








A te, o beato Giuseppe, stretti dalla tribolazione, ricorriamo e, fiduciosi invochiamo il tuo patrocinio con quello della tua Santissima sposa; Per quel sacro vincolo di carità, che ti strinse all'Immacolata Vergine Maria, Madre di Dio e per l'amore paterno che portasti al fanciullo Gesù, riguarda, te ne preghiamo, con occhio benigno la cara eredità, che Gesù Cristo acquistò col suo Sangue, e col tuo potere ed aiuto sovvieni ai nostri bisogni. Proteggi, o provvido custode della divina Famiglia, l'eletta prole di Gesù Cristo: allontana da noi; o Padre amatissimo, gli errori e i vizi che ammorbano il mondo; assistici propizio dal Cielo in questa lotta col potere delle tenebre, o nostro fortissimo protettore e come un tempo salvasti dalla morte la minacciata vita del pargoletto Gesù, così ora difendi la santa Chiesa di Dio dalle ostili insidie e da ogni avversità; e stendi ognora sopra ciascuno di noi il tuo patrocinio, affinché a tuo esempio e mediante il tuo soccorso, possiamo virtuosamente vivere, piamente morire e conseguire l'eterna beatitudine in Cielo. Amen












Ricordatevi o pietosissima Vergine Maria, che non si è inteso mai al mondo che alcuno, ricorrendo alla vostra protezione, implorando il vostro aiuto e chiedendo il vostro patrocinio, sia restato abbandonato. Animato io da una tale confidenza, a Voi ricorro, o Madre Vergine delle Vergini, a Voi vengo e con le lacrime agli occhi, reo di mille peccati, mi prostro ai vostri piedi a domandare pietà. Non vogliate o madre del Verbo disprezzare le mie voci, ma benigna ascoltatemi ed esauditemi. - Cosi sia
- Refugium peccatorum, Ora pro nobis - Recitare una Ave Maria
- Consolatrix afflictorum, Ora pro nobis - Recitare una Ave Maria
- Auxilium Christianorum, Ora pro nobis - Recitare una Ave Maria
Indulgenza di tre anni applicabile anche ai defunti per ogni volta che si recita. L'indulgenza è plenaria se la preghierasi recita ogni giorno per un mese intero.












Dal mezzogiorno del 1 Novembre a tutto il 2 novembre si può lucrare, una volta sola, l'indulgenza plenaria, applicabile soltanto ai defunti, visitando in loro suffragio una Chiesa o un Oratorio pubblico o anche semipubblico per coloro che legittimamente lo usano. Durante la visita si devono recitare un Padre Nostro ed un Credo. Si devono inoltre adempiere a suo tempo le solite tre condizioni previste per la concessione delle indulgenze, vale a dire:
- Confessione Sacramentale
- Comunione Eucaristica
- Preghiera secondo le intenzioni del Santo Padre (a scelta dei fedeli; per esempio un Padre Nostro e un Ave Maria).
Le tre condizioni possono essere adempiute anche nei giorni precedenti o seguenti quello in cui si visita la Chiesa o l'oratorio; tuttavia è conveniente che la santa Comunione e la preghiera secondo le intenzioni del Santo Padre siano fatte nello stesso giorno in cui si compie la visita.

il Rosario

Cose da fare:

Pregare il Rosario, 5 decadi del Rosario stasera con la vostra famiglia. Continuare questa pratica attraverso ottobre, il mese che è specialmente dedicato al Rosario.

Leggere le encicliche sul Rosario e l'ultima lettera apostolica.

Scopri i misteri luminosi. Per le famiglie con i bambini più piccoli, aiuta ad per avere ausili visivi per i misteri. Abbiamo un quadro per capovolgere all'inizio di ogni decennio il Rosario in famiglia. Vedere la barra di attività per le idee.

Impara come fare rosari, cavo e/o filo per le missioni.

Conoscere la grande vittoria della Madonna durante la battaglia di Lepanto. Potete anche leggere di più su Papa San Pio V, che istituì la festa della Madonna del Rosario.

Omelia del lettura cardinale Angelo Sodano al Santuario della Madonna del Rosario.

"Il Rosario, o Salterio della Beata Vergine Maria, è una delle più eccellenti preghiere alla madre di Dio." Leggere il Direttorio su pietà popolare e liturgia sul Rosario, in particolare incoraggiando le pratiche di:

1. Recita egli del Rosario potrebbe essere resa più solenne in tono "introducendo quei passaggi scritturali corrispondenti ai vari misteri, alcune parti potrebbero essere cantate, ruoli potrebbero essere distribuita e da solennemente di apertura e chiusura della preghiera".

2. L'abitudine di fare un'inserzione nella recita dell'Ave Maria, che è un antico uno che non ha completamente scomparsi, spesso è stato raccomandato dai pastori della Chiesa, dal momento che incoraggia la meditazione e la concurrence della mente e labbra.

Inserimenti di questa natura sembrerebbe particolarmente adatti per il carattere ripetitivo e meditativo del Rosario. Essa assume la forma di una proposizione relativa che segue il nome di Gesù e si riferisce al mistero essere contemplato. La meditazione del Rosario può essere aiutata dalla scelta di una clausola breve di natura scritturale e liturgica, fissata per ogni decade.

Alimenti per questa festa: poiché l'origine di questa festa è venuto dalla flotta cristiana sconfisse i turchi durante la battaglia di Lepanto nel 1570 per l'intercessione di Maria, attraverso il Rosario, perché non fare una torta a forma di una nave? Vedere la barra superiore per una torta di ritaglio, o fare moderazioni a questa torta di nave. Legga più circa la battaglia di Lepanto, per le idee.

S. Pio V era un molto Santo domenicano, che indossava la sua abitudine graffiante sotto le sue vesti papali e camminato intorno a Roma a piedi nudi. Ha mangiato solo per sostenersi e digiunato frequentemente. Dovremmo utilizzare il suo esempio e ricordarsi di digiunare e pregare il Rosario per la conversione dell'Islam.


E' suddiviso in quattro parti; in ogni parte si meditano cinque misteri.
Ogni decina può essere meditata "grano per grano" per ciascuna Ave Maria.
Le decine possono essere separate, purché la corona sia completata nello stesso giorno.
Quando non si dice il Rosario intero si può recitare una sola corona con un gruppo di misteri

del Rosario GAUDIOSI il lunedì e il sabato.
DOLOROSI il martedì e il venerdì.

GLORIOSI il mercoledì e la domenica.

Della LUCE il giovedì


Come recitare il Rosario

1 Il Segno della croce sul crocifisso, Invocazione iniziale "O Dio vieni a salvarmi" e il Credo.
2 Un Padre Nostro sul primo grano grosso.

Signore vieni presto in mio aiuto.

Il Credo:
Credo in Dio Padre Onnipotente, creatore del cielo e della terra; e in Gesù Cristo, nostro Signore, il quale fu concepito di Spirito Santo, nacque da Maria Vergine, patì sotto Ponzio Pilato, fu crocefisso, morì e fu sepolto.

Dacci oggi il nostro pane quotidiano e rimetti a noi i nostri debiti come noi li rimettiamo ai nostri debitori, e non ci indurre in tentazione ma liberaci dal male. Amen

Il Salve Regina: Salve Regina, Madre di Misericordia, vita dolcezza e speranza nostra, salve. A Te ricorriamo, esuli figli di Eva; a Te sospiriamo gementi e piangenti in questa valle di lacrime. Orsù dunque, avvocata nostra, rivolgi a noi gli occhi tuoi misericordiosi. E mostraci, dopo questo esilio, Gesù, il frutto benedetto del tuo seno. O clemente, o pia, o dolce Vergine Maria.
