The Lord’s Prayer

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.

Apostles 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; on the third day he rose again from the dead; he ascended into heaven, and is 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

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  

Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.

Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love; for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.  

An Examination of Conscience for Children using the Lord’s Prayer

Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.

  • Do I think about God every day?
  • Do I say my prayers?
  • Do I pay attention and participate at Mass?

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

  • Am I kind to others?
  • Do I do what Jesus wants me to do?
  • Do I share with others?
  • Am I helpful to my family?
  • Do I show respect to my teachers and classmates?

Give us this day our daily bread.

  • Do I remember to say thank you?
  • Am I sometimes greedy?
  • Do I appreciate the good things I have in my life?
  • Do I think of ways to help those who have no food?
  • Do I take things that don’t belong to me?

Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.

  • Do I say I’m sorry when I have been wrong?
  • Do I forgive and forget when someone does something bad to me?
  • Do I help solve problems between my friends or do I cause more trouble?
  • Do I say bad things about people who have hurt me?

Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

  • Do I play fairly in sports and games?
  • Do I cheat in school?
  • Do I tell the truth?
  • Do I set a good example by my kindness?
  • Do I let other kids tempt me to do things I know I shouldn’t do?

Act of Contrition

My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things. I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin. Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. In his name, my God, have mercy. Amen

Confiteor

I confess to almighty God and to you, my brothers and sisters, that I have greatly sinned, in my thoughts and in my words, in what I have done and in what I have failed to do, through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault; therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin all the Angels and Saints, and you, my brothers and sisters, to pray for me to the Lord our God.

Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.

Guardian Angel Prayer

Angel of God, my guardian dear to whom God’s love commits me here. Ever this day (night) be at my side to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen.
