Christ our King!
Thy Kingdom come!
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, 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.
Prayer to Begin the Day

and accompany them with your aid, so that I undertake
all my activities and carry them through according to your
will and out of love for you. I ask this
through Christ our Lord. Amen.
This is a minute of reflection
in God’s presence to go over your commitments, especially the
ones you need to work on. It is also a
moment to check both the regular and special items on
your agenda for the day

the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy
Prayer to the Holy Trinity
My Lord, God of
heaven and earth — Father and Creator, Son and Redeemer,
Holy Spirit and Sanctifier — I adore you and love
you with all my heart. I thank you for creating

sin and from all evil. May your grace always remain
with me and with all who are dear to me.

soul and King of Regnum Christi, once more I offer

PRAYERS AFTER COMMUNION
Prayer for the Pope
King and Lord of the Church, in your presence I
renew my unconditional loyalty to your Vicar on earth, the
Pope. In him you have chosen to show us the
safe and sure path that we must follow in the
midst of confusion, uneasiness, and unrest. I firmly believe that
through him you govern, teach and sanctify us; with him
as our shepherd, we form the true Church: one, holy,
catholic, and apostolic.
Grant me the grace to love,
live and spread faithfully our Holy Father’s teachings. Watch over
his life, enlighten his mind, strengthen his spirit, defend him
from calumny and evil. Calm the erosive winds of infidelity
and disobedience. Hear our prayer and keep your Church united
around him, firm in its belief and action, that it
may truly be the instrument of your redemption. Amen.
Lord Jesus, eternal Shepherd, in your kindness look with
mercy on this portion of your beloved flock. We cry
out to you as orphans: Lord, grant us vocations! Call
many of our young people to be holy priests and
consecrated men and women. We ask you this through the
intercession of Mary your tender, holy Mother. Lord Jesus, grant
us priests and consecrated persons after your own heart!
Spiritual Communion (when unable
to attend Mass or receive Communion)
My Jesus, I believe you
are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I love you
above all things, and I desire to receive you into
my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive you
sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace
you as if you were already there and unite myself
wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from
Prayer for Light
My Lord and
my God, I thank you for the countless gifts you
have given me, especially for creating and redeeming me, for
calling me to the Catholic faith, for choosing me to
be an apostle among my brothers and sisters, and for
freeing me from so many dangers of soul and body.
Enlighten my mind so I can recognize my faults, and
grant me the grace to be truly sorry and sincerely
mend my ways.
To conclude the evaluation take a few moments
for a trusting, heartfelt conversation with the Lord. Thank him
for what you have achieved, beg his forgiveness for the
failings you detect, and ask his help to be better
tomorrow. Then pray the prayers that follow. The point of
praying the Creed is to profess the Catholic faith ever
more consciously and to ask God for the grace to
bear witness to it openly and remain faithful to it
in its entirety until the end of your life.

almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only
Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all
ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from
