IN the name of our Lord Jesus Christ I arise. May He bless, preserve and govern me, and bring me to everlasting life. Amen.
When dressed kneel down and say:
the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
ACT OF THANKSGIVING.
MY dear God, I thank Thee from my heart for having given me life; for having made me a Catholic,
for having brought me safely through the night and given me another day to serve Thee.
ACT OF SELF-OFFERING.
MY God, I adore and bless Thee. All that I may think, speak, do, or suffer, this day, I offer up to Thee in union with Christ's life on earth, begging Thee to accept it as the tribute of my faith, my hope, my love. Forgive me my sins, O Father of mercy, and keep me from offending Thee today.
THE LORD'S PRAYER.
UR Father, who art in heaven, hallowed by 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.
THE ANGELICAL SALUTATION.
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.
THE APOSTLES' CREED.
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 Ghost; 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, sitteth 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 Ghost; the Holy Catholic Church; the communion of
saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.
HEART of Jesus, the way, the truth, and the life, have mercy on

Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts, that we, to whom the incarnation of Christ, Thy Son, has been made known by the message of an angel, may, by His passion and cross, be brought to the glory of His resurrection, through the same Christ our Lord. R. Amen.
[Whoever says the Angelus daily at the sound of the bell, for a whole month, and in the course of the same month goes to confession and communion, gains a plenary indulgence. Benedict XIII.]
GRACE BEFORE AND AFTER
Bless us, O Lord, and these Thy gifts which we are about to receive from Thy bounty, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
We give thanks, Almighty God, for all Thy benefits, who livest and reignest world without end. Amen.
May the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace. Amen.
