 The 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.
He ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right hand of God, the Father almighty.
From thence He will come again 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.

 The Confiteor

 ‘I confess’

I confess to almighty God, and to you, my brothers and sisters, that I have sinned through my own fault (Strike breast) in my thoughts and in my words,  in what I have done, and in what I have failed to do;  and 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.

May almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us our sins, and bring us to everlasting life.  Amen.

 An Act of Faith

O my God, I firmly believe that You are one God in three Divine Persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; I believe that Your Divine Son became man and died for our sins, and that He will come to Judge the living and the dead. I believe these and all the truths, which the Holy Catholic Church teaches, because You revealed them, who can neither deceive nor be deceived.

An Act of Love

O my God, I love You above all things, with my whole heart and soul, because You are, all-good and worthy of all love. I love my neighbour as myself for the love of You. I forgive all who have injured me, and I ask pardon of all whom I have injured.
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Living God, Have mercy on me, a sinner.

Act of Contrition

 O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended You. I detest all my sins because I dread the loss of heaven and the pains of hell.

I firmly resolve, with the help of Your grace to sin no more and to avoid the near occasions of sin. Amen.
