THE At The Foot Of The Cross PRAYER
In the name of the Father,
and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit.
I will go to the altar of God. To God who gives joy to my youth. Judge me, O God, and take up my cause against the nation that is not holy. Free me from the unjust and deceitful man. For You, O God, are my strength, why have You cast me off? And why do I walk in sorrow, while the enemy troubles me? Send forth Your light and Your truth, they have led me, and brought me to Your holy hill, and to Your dwelling. I will go to the altar of God, to God who gives joy to my youth. To You, O God, my God, I will give praise upon the harp, why are you sad, O my soul? And why do you trouble me? Hope in God, for I will still praise Him, the salvation of my countenance and my God.
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.
I will go to the altar of God. To God who gives joy to my youth. Our help is in the name of the Lord. Who has made heaven and earth. May almighty God have mercy upon you, forgive you your sins, and bring you to life everlasting. I confess to almighty God, to blessed Mary, ever Virgin, to blessed Michael the Archangel, to blessed John the Baptist, to the holy apostles Peter and Paul, to all the saints, and to you, Father, that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed; through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore, I beg blessed Mary, ever Virgin, blessed Michael the Archangel, blessed John the Baptist, the holy apostles Peter and Paul, all the saints and you, Father, to pray to the Lord our God for me. May almighty God have mercy upon you, and forgive you your sins, and bring you to life everlasting. May the almighty and merciful Lord grant us pardon, absolution, and remission of our sins. You will turn again, O God, and quicken us. And Your people shall rejoice in You. Show unto us, O Lord, Your mercy. And grant us Your salvation. O Lord, hear my prayer. And let my cry reach up to You.
The Lord be with you. And with your spirit.
Take from us our sins, O Lord, that we may enter with pure minds into the holy of holies. Through Christ our Lord. We beg You, O Lord, by the merits of Your saints, that You would be so kind as to forgive me all my sins.

I need courage to bear unkindness, mockery, contradiction. I need courage to fight against the devil, against terrors and troubles, temptations, attractions, darkness and ... continue reading
