The Apostle's Creed
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 Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended into Hell; the third day He
arose again from the dead; He ascended into
Heaven and is seated 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 Spirit,
the Holy Catholic Church, the Communion of Saints,
the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting.  Amen.
 

HAIL HOLY QUEEN [Salve, Regina]
Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy; hail 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.  Pray for us,
O holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Partial Indulgence.
 

HAIL MARY
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among 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.
