Begin with the Our Father.

1 The righteous live forever, and their recompense is with the Lord; the Most High provides for them.
2 Therefore, they will receive a glorious crown and a splendid diadem from the hand of the Lord.
3 For he will shelter them with his right hand and shield them with his arm.
4 They will judge nations and have dominion over peoples, and the Lord will be their King forever.
5 Those who trust in him will understand truth, and the faithful will dwell with him in love.
6 Grace and mercy are reserved for his holy ones, and he shows concern for his elect.
7 For the fruit of good works is glorious, and the root of understanding is ever fruitful.
8 Immortality is gained by a remembrance of virtue, since it is acknowledged both by God and by men.
9 Throughout eternity, it marches crowned in triumph, victorious in the struggle for prizes that are undefiled.
10 For God created us to be immortal and formed us in the image of his own nature.
The Fatima Prayer: O My Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of Hell, lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in most need of your mercy.
Hail, holy Queen, mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile show us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.
V: Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.
R: That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
V: Let us pray.
R: O God, whose only begotten Son, by His life, death, and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal salvation. Grant, we beseech Thee, that while meditating on these mysteries of the most holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, that we may both imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.
