ACTS OF FAITH, HOPE, AND CHARITY. LMIGHTY and everlasting God, grant us
an increase of faith, hope, and charity ; and that we may deserve to obtain what Thou promisest, make us to love what Thou commandest; through Christ our Lord. Amen.
We firmly believe all that the Catholic Church believeth and teacheth, because Thou, O God, hast revealed it: and in this faith we desire to live and die.
And because of Thy promises, we hope through the merits of Christ Thy Son to obtain the forgiveness of our sins, grace to serve Thee faithfully in this life, and the rewards Thou hast promised in the next.
Moreover, we love Thee with our whole hearts and above all things, because Thou, O God, art the Sovereign Good and worthy of all love; and for Thy sake we love our neighbours as ourselves.
Let us call to mind the chief sins of our past life, and make resolutions against the temptations and dangerous occasions we may meet with during the day.

and in obtaining everlasting life. We are sorry above all things that we have offended Thee, because Thou art infinitely good, and sin is infinitely displeasing to Thee. We desire to love Thee with our whole hearts, and firmly purpose, by the help of Thy grace, to serve Thee more faithfully for the time to come. Do Thou, O Holy Ghost, both breathe into us the desires which are pleasing to Thee, and endue us with the strength and constancy to carry them out in our actions: that, disregarding all vain and passing things, we may fix our minds and our hearts on that kingdom, in which, with the Father and the Son, Thou livest and reignest one God, world without end. Amen.
Let us mentally unite in the Sacrifice of the Mass, wherever it is being offered up.
E offer Thee, O God, the life and death of
these our affections and resolutions; our thoughts, words, deeds, and sufferings of this day and of our whole lives: 1. in honour of Thine adorable Majesty, 2. in thanksgiving for all Thy benefits, 3. in satisfaction for our sins, and 4. to obtain the assistance of Thy grace; that persevering to the end in doing Thy holy will, we may love and enjoy Thee for ever in Thy glory. Amen.
Let us place ourselves under the protection of Almighty God.
HOU knowest, O God, how weak and unable we are to do good. Leave us not to ourselves but take us under Thy protection, and give us grace faithfully to comply with these holy re
