The Statement of Faith
I believe in the Father Almighty, creator of Heaven and Earth; And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, was crucified, died and was buried; on the third day He rose again. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, together with the Father and the Son He is worshipped and glorified; he has spoken through the prophets. I believe in one holy, catholic and apostolic church. I acknowledge one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting. Amen.
Examination of conscience, Confession, and prayers for the night
O my God, I that you for all the benefits which I have received from you, and especially this day. Give me light to see what sins I have committed, and grant me grace to be truly sorry for them.
Here examine your conscience for the faults you have committed during the day.
O my God, I am very sorry that I have offended you, because you are so good; I love you with all my heart, and with your help I will not sin again.
I confess, to almighty God, to blessed Mary ever a Virgin, to blessed Michael the Archangel, to blessed John the Baptist, to the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and to all the Saints, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed; through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I ask blessed Mary ever a Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and all the Saints, to pray for me to the Lord our God. Amen.
May our Blessed Lady, St Joseph, and all the Saints, pray for us to our Lord, that we may be preserved this night from sin and all evil. Amen.
O my good Angel, whom God has appointed to be my guardian, watch over me during this night.
All the Angels and Saints of God, pray for me.
May our Lord bless us and preserve us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life.
May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
