A Prayer of Spiritual Holy Communion
I believe, 0 Lord, and confess that You are truly Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God. Who came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the first. Accept me this day, Son of God, as a partaker of Your mystical supper. I am the thief, I confess to you. Lord, when you come into your kingdom remember me. May this spiritual partaking of Your holy Mysteries, 0 Lord, be not for my judgement or condemnation but for the healing of soul and body.
God, be merciful to me, a sinner. God, cleanse me of my sins, and have mercy on me. I have sinned without number, forgive me, 0 Lord. Eucharistic Heart of Jesus; I wish to be united with your eternal oblation to the Father, with each Eucharistic sacrifice being offered upon this earth. Lord Jesus, come and dwell in my heart, nourish me with the Bread of Life, cleanse and purify me in Your Precious Blood.
Renewal of Baptismal Promises
It's very important to remember one's anniversary of baptism. The Church has given an opportunity to gain a plenary indulgence if one renews the baptismal promises on that day.
A partial indulgence is granted to the faithful, who renew their baptismal promises according to formula in use; but a plenary indulgence is granted, if this is done either: 1) in the celebration of the Paschal Vigil or 2) on the anniversary of one's baptism.
I, N. N., who through the tender mercy of the Eternal Father was privileged to be baptized "in the name of the Lord Jesus" (Acts 19, 5) and thus to share in the dignity of his divine Sonship, wish now in the presence of this same loving Father and of his only-begotten Son to renew in all sincerity the promises I solemnly made at the time of my holy Baptism.
I, therefore, now do once again renounce Satan; I renounce all his works; I renounce all his allurements.
I believe in God, the Father almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was born into this world and who suffered and died for my sins and rose again. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of Saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and life everlasting. Having been buried with Christ unto death and raised up with him unto a new life, I promise to live no longer for myself or for that world which is the enemy of God but for him who died for me and rose again, serving God, my heavenly Father, faithfully and unto death in the holy Catholic Church.
Taught by our Savior's command and formed by the word of God, I now dare to say:
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:
