He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

For that sweetness you felt towards him, when you went to seek him, and for the joy you felt when you found him and offered him your gifts, that you advise me regarding that which I ask. Inasmuch as God hears you and accepted your gifts. True God as you accepted their gifts may you accept today my prayer on account of their love, and as the star appeared to them in the east which led them to you in the place they had so greatly desired, so to Lord God, you filled my desire for gladness and joy. Grant me that I may have and behold what my heart desires, for the praise of God and my lady Saint Mary. Amen.

When Leaving Your Home
Today as I rise and tend to my day that I have received from the LORD, when I leave my home and set forth on my journey may Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, The Three Kings, Jasper, Melchior, and Balthazar be my travel companions.

Lead me to eternal happiness. Pray for us now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Prayer of St. Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love. Where there is injury, pardon. Where there is doubt, faith. Where there is despair, hope. Where there is darkness, light. Where there is sadness, joy. Oh divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, yo be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, It is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life. Amen.
