Join us in 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.
Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed are 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.
Loving God, I pause in the middle of a busy day to reflect on my words
and actions. I humbly ask your forgiveness, O God, for my faults and sins.
I am ready now to make a fresh start. Help me choose gracious words
and loving actions the remainder of this day. Direct my thoughts and
guide my steps. Thank you for the gifts and joy you bring my way.
A prayer for the deceased...
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord. And let perpetual light shine
upon them. May their souls and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
