Catholic Prayers and Saints Prayers before Mass


Here are some Catholic prayers that can be said before Mass:

  1. Sign of the Cross: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
  2. Act of Contrition: O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins because I dread the loss of Heaven and the pains of Hell, but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, Who art all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to confess my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life. Amen.

  5. Prayer for the Church: Almighty and Everlasting God, look upon the Heart of Thy well-beloved Son and upon the acts of praise and satisfaction which He renders unto Thee in the name of sinners; and do Thou, in Thy great goodness, grant pardon to them who seek Thy mercy, in the name of the same Thy Son, Jesus Christ, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee, world without end. Amen.
  6. Prayer of Preparation: Lord, I am not worthy that You should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.

Catholic Saints Prayer before Mass

Here are some Catholics Saints Prayers before Mass:

  1. Saint Thomas Aquinas: O merciful God, grant that I may ardently desire, carefully search out, truthfully acknowledge, and ever perfectly fulfill that which is pleasing to You for the praise and glory of Your Holy Name. Amen.
  2. Saint Padre Pio: Stay with me, Lord, for it is necessary to have You present so that I do not forget You. You know how easily I abandon You. Stay with me, Lord, because I am weak and I need Your strength, that I may not fall so often. Amen.
  3. Saint Teresa of Avila: Let nothing disturb you, let nothing frighten you, all things are passing away: God never changes. Patience obtains all things. Whoever has God lacks nothing; God alone suffices. Amen.
  4. Saint Francis of Assisi: Most High, glorious God, enlighten the darkness of my heart and give me true faith, certain hope, and perfect charity, sense and knowledge, Lord, that I may carry out Your holy and true command. Amen.
  5. Saint Ignatius of Loyola: Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, and my entire will. All I have and call my own. You have given all to me. To You, Lord, I return it. Everything is Yours, do with it what You will. Give me only Your love and Your grace, that is enough for me. Amen.
  6. Saint Augustine of Hippo: Grant me, O Lord, to know what I ought to know, to love what I ought to love, to praise what delights You most, to value what is precious in Your sight, to hate what is offensive to You. Do not allow me to judge according to the sight of my eyes, nor to pass sentence according to the hearing of my ears, but to discern with a true judgment between things visible and spiritual, and above all, always to inquire what is the good pleasure of Your will. Amen.
  7. Saint Catherine of Siena: O incomprehensible God, how great is Your mercy! You have deigned to make Your dwelling in our humanity. O love, O joy, even to the extent of being hidden beneath the lowliness of bread and wine! You have made Yourself wholly desirable, and have deigned to unite Yourself to us who are entirely vile. Amen.
  8. Saint Therese of Lisieux: Jesus, help me to simplify my life by learning what You want me to be, and becoming that person. Amen.
