ACTS OF FAITH, HOPE & CHARITY
AND VOTIVE PRAYER FOR CHARITY
ACT OF FAITH
O my God! I
firmly believe that Thou art one God in three Divine
Persons, Father, Son and Holy Ghost; I believe that Thy
Divine Son became man, and died for our sins, and that he
will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe these
and all the truths which the Holy Catholic Church teaches,
because Thou hast revealed them, Who canst neither deceive
nor be deceived. Amen.
O my God!
Relying on Thy almighty power and infinite mercy and
promises, I hope to obtain pardon of my sins, the help of
Thy grace, and life everlasting, through the merits of Jesus
Christ, my Lord and Redeemer. Amen.
O my God! I
love Thee above all things, with my whole heart and soul,
because Thou art all good and worthy of all love. I love my
neighbour as myself for love of Thee. I forgive all who
have injured me and ask pardon of all whom I have injured.
VOTIVE PRAYER FOR CHARITY
God, for those who love you, all things work together for
good. Instill in our hearts an unwavering love for you, so
that the desires that spring up in us as a result of your
inspiration may ever remain unchanged in spite of every
temptation. Through our Lord.
God, your sacraments and commandments remake us in your own
likeness. Help us to walk in your paths and grant us
through the offering of this sacrifice the gift of charity
for which you taught us to hope with confidence. Through
O Lord, may
the grace of the Holy Ghost enlighten our hearts and refresh
them completely with the fragrance of perfect charity.
Through our Lord in the unity of the same Holy Ghost. Amen.
