Be merciful, Spare us, O Lord.
Be merciful, Graciously hear us, O Lord.

From all sin,
O Lord, deliver us. **
From pride and vain-glory,**
From avarice and worldly solicitude,**
From anger, resentment, and envy,**
From calumny, detraction, and rash judgment,**
From gluttony, drunkenness, and impurity,**
From spiritual sloth, and the forgetfulness of our salvation,**
From the abuse of thy grace, and a reprobate sense,**
From the worm that never dieth, and the fire that shall never be extinguished,**
From being deprived of the sight and enjoyment of Thee,**

Through Thy almighty power and infinite wisdom,**
Through Thy incomprehensible majesty and eternal glory,**
Through Thy ineffable bounty and superabundant mercy,**
Through all the humiliations and sufferings of thine only-begotten Son,**
We sinners, Beseech Thee, hear us.
That we may love Thee, the Lord our God, with all our heart, with all our soul, and with all our mind.
We beseech Thee, hear us. ***
That we may adore Thee alone, and serve Thee in holiness and righteousness all the days of our lives,***

That we may never take Thy holy name in vain,***
That we may sanctify the feasts and holy day of the Church,***
That we may give due honor and obedience to our parents and lawful superiors,***
That we may not injure our neighbor in body, soul or peace of mind,***
That we may crucify the flesh, with its vices and concupiscences, and be ever clean of heart,***
That we may not do to others what we would not have others do to us,***
That we may not covet our neighbor’s goods,***
That Thou wouldst make all grace abound in us,***
That we may present our bodies a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to Thee,***
That Thou wouldest bring us to the kingdom which Thou hast prepared for us from the foundation of the world,***

Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world,
Spare us, O Lord.
Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world,
Graciously hear us, O Lord,
Lamb of God, Who takest away the sins of the world,
Have mercy on us.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be world without end. Amen

Let us pray.

O adorable Lord, in Three distinct and equal Persons One God, Who requirest the homage of our reason by the belief of mysteries which are above our understanding, and that of our will by the observances of precepts which are mortifying to our natural inclinations; give us Thy grace to perform this two-fold duty, and grant that we may never oppose our uncertain reasoning to Thy infallible truth, nor deliberately transgress Thy most high and holy commands. Thus continuing until death, in entire subjection to Thee, may we come at last to the clear and perfect enjoyment of Thee. Who livest and reignest world without end. Amen.
