ANGLO-SAXON PRAYER TO THE HOLY TRINITY

ANGLO-SAXON PRAYER TO THE HOLY TRINITY

I adore thee, O God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, one in Divinity, equal in glory, coeternal in majesty. Thou art the true and only God, and there is no other God but thee.

Thou art to be adored and worshipped, to be feared and reverenced, as three Persons and as One God.

Thou art the same mighty Lord and Omnipotent God who alone knowest the faith and conscience of all men.

O God, be merciful to me a sinner; to me a sinner, who for a very number of my offences am not worthy to raise my eyes to heaven, nor to look up to thee, O God, Father Almighty.

And, O most merciful God the Son, our Maker and our Redeemer, coeternal and coequal with the Father and the Holy Spirit, who camest into this world to save sinners, do thou take pity on me, who am a sinner, weighted down under the burden of all my offences and evil habits.

O God of mercy, take thou from me all my offences, past, present, and future; send down from heaven thy holy helping Spirit, so that my iniquity and my sin may not master me, but that I may have strength to do the penance which is pleasing to thee, and may thus deserve to obtain thy mercy.

O God, who alone art all wise, thou knowest what is best for me a sinner; do with me what seems good in the eyes of thy Majesty.

O loving Father and merciful God, receive the supplications of thy servant; and may the prayers which I, a wretched sinner, offer now in thy sight rise up unto the ears of thy mercy. Amen.

O Holy Trinity, be my stay. Hear me, listen to my prayer, hearken to my cry. Thou art my living God. Thou art my all-holy Protector. Thou art my loving Lord. Thou art my just judge. Thou art my help in time of need. Thou art my guide to the heavenly kingdom. Thou art my true light. Thou art my holy joy. Thou art my ample portion. Thou art my everlasting salvation. Thou art my full life. Thou art my unspotted victory. Thou art my future hope. Thou art my accomplished redemption. Thou art my perfect charity. Thou art my holy resurrection. Thou art my life eternal. Thee I ask, thee I beg, thee I beseech, that I may live for thee; that I may come to thee; that I may rest in thee. Do thou hear me. Listen to my prayer, hearken to my cry, who livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen.

ANGLO-SAXON PRAYERS TO THE FATHER, THE SON AND THE HOLY GHOST

PRAYER TO GOD THE FATHER

O Holy Lord, Almighty Father, and most merciful God, before all time thou didst beget the Son, coequal, coeternal, and consubstantial with thyself, and the Holy Spirit proceeding from thee and Him. Thou didst create the heavens and the earth, the sea and all things that have life in them, visible and invisible. I praise thee, I adore thee, I glorify thee. Look lovingly upon me, a most wretched sinner. Despise not the work of thy hands. Through thy unspeakable goodness save me, and for thy holy name’s sake aid me. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

PRAYER TO GOD THE SON

O Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God, God omnipotent and merciful, splendour and image of the Father; Life everlasting, who art one in substance with the eternal Father and the Holy Ghost; equal in honour, in glory, and in coeternal majesty; thee I praise, thee I adore, thee I glorify. Suffer me not, I beseech thee, to perish; come to my aid, save me. Help me whom thou hast redeemed by thy blood with the grace thou bestowest of thy own free gift; who with the coeternal God, the Father and the Holy Spirit, livest and reignest, world without end. Amen.

PRAYER TO GOD THE HOLY GHOST

O Holy Spirit, omnipotent Lord and merciful God, coequal, coeternal, and of the same substance with the Father and the Son, who proceedest in an ineffable manner from them, who didst come down on our Lord Jesus under the form of a dove, and in the holy Apostles in tongues of fire; thee I praise, thee I adore, thee I glorify. Dispel from me, I beseech thee, all darkness of iniquity, ingratitude, and negligence. Light up within me the hope of thy mercy, and enkindle the flames of thy holy fear and most winning love. Who with the coeternal Father and His Son, our Lord, livest and reignest, one God, world without end. Amen.

MOTHER EUGENIA’S PRAYER TO THE MOST HOLY TRINITY

(By Mother Eugenia Elisabetta Ravasio)

Most holy Trinity,
Divine reality in the unity of One only Being and in the threefold diversity of the Persons of the Father and the Son in the Holy Spirit,
I adore You in the nothingness of my being, rich only in the gift of life which You have lavished upon me.

In this act of adoration I intend to gather together all the voices of Your creatures and to unite them with my own.

They are the voices of Your voice which I desire to gather together in the chalice of my love, so that, united to the only-begotten Son, who as God-Man, rendered the most perfect praise in His loving obedience to the Divine Will, I might, in the fullest way possible, offer my participation today in time and tomorrow in Eternity. Amen.

 

GLORY BE TO THE ADORABLE TRINITY

Glory be to the Father,
who by His almighty power
and love created me, making
me in the image and likeness of God.

Glory be to the Son,
who by His Precious Blood
delivered me from hell, and
opened for me the gates of Heaven.

Glory be to the Holy Spirit,
who has santified me in the
Sacrament of Baptism, and
continues to sanctify me by
the graces I receive daily from His bounty.

Glory be to the three adorable
Persons of the Holy Trinity,
now and forever.
Amen.

 

PRAYER TO BE CONFORMED TO THE WILL OF THE HOLY TRINITY

(This prayer to surrender ourselves entirely to the Triune God; to live only for the Holy Trinity’s Will, can be said as a novena for nine consecutive days.)

Most Holy Trinity, Godhead indivisible, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, our Alpha and Omega, our first beginning and our last end: Since You have made us after Your own image and likeness, grant that all the thoughts of our minds, all the words of our tongues, all the affections of our hearts and all our actions may be always conformed to Your most Holy Will, so that after having seen You here on earth in appearances and in a dark manner by the means of faith, we may come at last to contemplate You face to face, in the perfect possession of You forever in paradise.
Amen.

One Our Father, three Hail Marys, ten Glory be.

Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
I adore thee profoundly,
and I offer thee
