Official Prayer to Saint Maria Goretti

O Holy Maria Goretti who,
assisted by Divine Grace,
did not hesitate even at the tender age of twelve
to shed your blood and sacrifice life itself
to defend your virginal purity!

Look graciously, O celestial Maiden,
over this miserable humanity, so distant
from the path of eternal salvation.

Teach us all, especially the youth,
that with courage and promptitude they must
postpone all things for the love of Jesus,
and acquire for us from the Lord
a true horror for sin,
so that we may always be able to separate
ourselves from sin;
be able to live in the Grace of God,
and deserve the eternal reward from Heaven.
So be it. Amen

Pray one Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be

Prayer Before a Dance or Party

Dear Saint Maria Goretti!
The world teaches that we must please others
in order to be popular.

Conscience demands that I please God more
than one who asks an evil thing in the name of false love.
Teach me by your example, to instill into others a real
respect for modesty and purity.

Through your powerful intercession,
help me to make of this evening and occasion for helping
others to become spiritually stronger.

Grant that others may see in me reason to change their ways,
if that be necessary, and that I may have the courage
to resist any temptation of sinful conduct.
Let others be led closer to Jesus and Mary by my example.

O Little Saint who wanted to be popular only with your Divine Master
and His Blessed Mother, help me to imitate you. Amen

Pray one Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be

Prayer Before a Date

Dear Little Saint Maria Goretti!
Teach me that God must be my first love
and that all other love is based on Him and Him alone.

Obtain for me the grace
to cease toying with the occasions of sin,
and to remember that my body
and the bodies of all those in grace
are temples of the Holy Spirit,
destined someday for a glorious resurrection.

Through your beautiful example,
teach me the value and dignity of Christian modesty.

Grant that I may never be the reason
of leading others into Hell, because of my
suggestive words or evil deeds of any kind.

Through the merits of your Martyrdom,
obtain for me the grace to turn aside
from sin, no matter what the cost,
so that one day I may enjoy Heaven
with you and all the other saints. Amen

OUR FATHER

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.
Liberate us from all temptation[*]
And deliver us from all evil. Amen



[*] Liberate us is in keeping with the original Latin text.
       God usually does not "lead us" to temptation
       (unless we are tested),
       but gives us the grace to overcome and/or resist it

HAIL MARY

Hail Mary, full of grace
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art though among women,
And blessed is the fruit
Of thy womb, Jesus.
 
Holy Mary, Mary of God
Pray for us sinners
Now, and in the hour
Of our death. Amen

APOSTLE'S CREED

I believe in God, the Father Almighty Creator of Heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ, His Only Son, our Lord;
Who was conceived by the
[work and grace of the] Holy Ghost,[*]
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended into the Dead.[**]
On the third day, He rose again;
He ascended into Heaven,
And sits at the right hand of God,
the Father Almighty.
From thence he shall come to judge
the living and the dead.
 
I believe in the Holy Ghost,[*]
The Holy Catholic Church,
The communion of saints,
The forgiveness of sins.
The resurrection of the body,
And life everlasting. Amen


[*] Holy Ghost: may be substituted with the current Holy Spirit.
[**] the Dead: "inferi", the underworld or the dead in Latin.

DE PROFUNDIS

Out of the depths I have cried to Thee, O Lord:
Lord, hear my voice.
Let Thine ears be attentive
to the voice of my supplication.

If thou, O Lord, wilt mark iniquities:
Lord, who shall abide it.
For with Thee there is merciful forgiveness:
and because of Thy law,
I have waited for Thee, O Lord.

My soul hath waited on His word:
my soul hath hoped in the Lord.
From the morning-watch even until night,
let Israel hope in the Lord.

For with the Lord there is mercy:
and with Him plenteous redemption.
And He shall redeem Israel
from all her iniquities.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost[*],
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen

the faithful, we beseech Thee to grant
to the souls of Thy servants the remission
of their sins, so that by our prayers
they may obtain pardon for which they long.
O Lord, who lives and reigns,
world without end. Amen

May they rest in peace. Amen

PADRE NUESTRO

Padre Nuestro,
que estas en los Cielos
Santificado sea Tu Nombre;
Venga a nosotros tu Reino;
Hágase Tu Voluntad
en la tierra como en el cielo.
Danos hoy nuestro pan de cada día;
Perdona nuestras ofensas,
Como también nosotros
perdonamos a los que nos ofenden,
No nos dejes caer en la tentación,
y líbranos del mal. Amén

De nuestra muerte.

CREDO

Creo en Dios, Padre Todopoderoso,
Creador del cielo y de la tierra.
Creo en Jesucristo,
Su único Hijo, Nuestro Señor,
Que fue concebido por obra
y gracia del Espíritu Santo,
Nació de la Santa María Virgen;
Padeció bajo el poder de Poncio Pilato,
Fue crucificado, muerto y sepultado,
Descendió a los infiernos,
Al tercer día resucitó de entre los muertos,
Subió a los cielos
Y está sentado a la derecha de Dios,
Padre Todopoderoso.
Desde allí ha de venir a juzgar
a los vivos y a los muertos.

Creo en el Espíritu Santo,
La Santa Iglesia Católica,
La comunión de los santos,
El perdón de los pecados,
La resurrección de la carne
Y la vida eterna. Amén

DE PROFUNDIS

Desde lo hondo a Ti grito, Señor; Señor,
escucha mi voz;
Estén Tus oidos atentos
a la voz de mi súplica.

Si llevas cuenta de los delitos, Señor,
¿quién podrá resistir?
Pero de ti procede el perdón,
y así infundes respeto.
Mi alma espera en el Señor.

Espera en su palabra;
mi alma aguarda al Señor,
más que el centinela la aurora.
Aguarda Israel al Señor.

Como el centinela la aurora;
porque del Señor viene la misericordia.
la redención copiosa;
y Él redimirá a Israel de todos sus delitos.

Gloria al Padre, al Hijo y al
Espíritu Santo,
como es desde el principio,
es ahora y será por los siglos de los siglos.
Amén
