Sign of the Cross

In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit


Meaning of the Sign of the Cross

  • Reaffirmation of Baptism promises

  • Unites us with the suffering of Christ

  • Proclaims our redemption by the cross



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.



Hail Mary

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.





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 end.

Prayer To Our Guardian Angel

Angel of God,

my guardian dear,

to whom God's love commits me here,

ever this day be at my side

to light and,

to rule and guide.






O Jesus, 

through the Immaculate

Heart of Mary,

I offer you all my prayers, works, joy, and sufferings of this day, for all the intentions of your Sacred Heart, in union with the holy sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, in preparation for my sins, and for the intentions of all my relatives and friends.





O my God, at the end of this day I thank You most heartily for all the graces I have received from You. I am sorry that I have not made a better use of them. I am sorry for all the sins I have committed against You. Forgive me, O my God, and graciously protect me this night. Blessed Virgin Mary, my dear heavenly mother, take me under your protection. St. Joseph, my dear Guardian Angel, and all you saints of God pray for me. Sweet Jesus, have pity on all poor sinners and save them from hell. Have mercy on the suffering souls in purgatory.
