Our Prayers
Hail Mary,  full of Grace The Lord is with Thee. Blessed art 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. Amen.
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.
Hail Holy Queen Hail, holy Queen, Mother of Mercy! Our life, our sweetness, and our hope! To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn, then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us; and after this our exile show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary. Amen.

The Pope Video and Our Prayers
Pope Francis - October 2018 October 2018. The Pope Video: Each month, The Pope Video disseminates the Holy Father's prayer intentions for the challenges of humanity and the mission of the Church. The joy with which men and women religious fulfill their mission is a blessing for us all. Let us support them so they may find their path, accompanying the most disadvantaged. "Religious, with their prayer, poverty, and patience, are essential to the Church's mission. Religious, monks, and nuns, as well as consecrated lay people, because of their personal relationship with Jesus Christ, offer their lives for the Gospel. I am thankful for their lives, spent so close to families, to refugees, to the elderly, to the poor, to children... More than ever, with the challenges of today's world, we need your complete dedication to proclaiming the Gospel in every corner of the world. Let us not allow ourselves to be robbed of missionary enthusiasm, and let us pray that consecrated religious men and women may bestir themselves, and be present among the poor, the marginalized, and those who have no voice."
