Sign of the Cross
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti. Amen.
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 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, and 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 life everlasting. Amen.
Credo in Deum Patrem omnipotentem, Creatorem caeli et terrae; et in Iesum Christum, Filium eius unicum, Dominum nostrum; qui conceptus est de Spiritu Sancto, natus ex Maria Virgine; passus sub Pontio Pilato, crucifixus, mortuus, et sepultus; descendit ad infernos; tertia die resurrexit a mortuis; ascendit ad caelos, sedet ad dexteram Dei Patris omnipotentis; inde venturus est iudicare vivos et mortuos. Credo in Spiritum Sanctum; Sanctam Ecclesiam Catholicam; Sanctorum communionem; remissionem peccatorum; carnis resurrectionem; vitam aeternam. Amen.
The Lord's Prayer (Our Father)
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
Oratio Dominicae (Pater noster)
Pater noster, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur Nomen Tuum. Adveniat regnum Tuum, fiat voluntas Tua, sicut in caelo et in terra. Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra, sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris, et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.
The Angelic Salutation (Hail Mary) [Pray three times]

Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum; Benedicta tu in mulieribus et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus. Sancta Maria, Mater Dei, ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.
The Minor Doxology (Glory Be)
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Stella Maris (Star of the Sea)
Prayer of St. Germanus to Our Lady
"O you, who are, after God, my powerful protectress and my true consolation in this world,
you who are the celestial dew that sweetens my pains;
the light of my soul when
plunged in darkness, my guide in my journeys,
my strength in my weaknesses, my treasure in
poverty, the remedy of my wounds, my joy in all
my sorrows, my refuge in all dangers, the hope of
my life and of my salvation, deign to hear my
prayers, to take an interest in my woes, and to
show me that compassion which peculiarly belongs
to the Mother of a God Who entertains such love
and goodness towards men. He is their Father,
and He has constituted you their Mother. Ah!
place me then amongst the number of your dearest
children, and obtain for me from God all the
graces which you know to be necessary for the
salvation of my soul. Amen."
