Glory to the Father, Who created me ; glory to the Son, Who redeemed me ; glory to the Holy Ghost, Who sanctifieth me.

ACT OF ADORATION AND THANKSGIVING.

Almighty and eternal God, I adore Thee, and I thank Thee for all the benefits which Thou, in Thy infinite goodness and mercy, hast conferred upon me. I thank Thee especially for having preserved and protected me this night.

ACT OF FAITH

O MY God, I believe in Thee, because Thou art Truth itself, and I firmly believe all the sacred truths which the holy Catholic Church believes and teaches, because Thou hast revealed them.

ACT OF HOPE

O MY God, I hope in Thee, because Thou art omnipotent, most merciful, and faithful to Thy promises; I hope to obtain the pardon of my sins, the grace to live a holy life, to die a happy death, and to obtain life everlasting, through the merits of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Redeemer.

ACT OF LOVE

O MY God, I love Thee with my whole heart, and above all things, because Thou art infinitely good ; and for the love of Thee I love my neighbor as myself.

ACT OF SUPPLICATION

O MY God, I beseech Thee most earnestly to bless me that I may serve Thee faithfully this day by a perfect devotedness to all my duties and a steadfast adherence to all my promises and good resolutions.

ACT OF CONTRITION

O MY God, I am truly sorry for having sinned, because Thou art infinitely good and sin displeases Thee. I will avoid the occasions of sin and strive in all things to do Thy holy will.

ACT OF CONSECRATION

O MY God, I wish to consecrate this day and all the days of my life to Thy honor and glory.

OFFERING

ALMIGHTY and eternal God  ! I offer Thee all my prayers, works, and sufferings in union with the Sacred Heart of Jesus, for the intentions for which He pleads and offers Himself in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in thanksgiving for Thy favors, in reparation for my offenses, and in humble supplication for my temporal and eternal welfare, for the wants of our holy Mother the Church, for the conversion of sinners, and for the relief of the poor souls in purgatory.

I have the intention to gain all the indulgences attached to the prayers I shall say, and to the good works I shall perform this day. I resolve to gain all the indulgences I can in favor of the souls in purgatory.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Apostles Creed, Glory.
