Penitential Act 1

In my thoughts and in my words,
In what I have done and in what I have failed to do,
        (And, striking their breast, they say:)
Through my fault, through my faule,
Through my most grievous fault;
       (Then they continue:)
Therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin,
All the Angels and Saints,
And you, my brothers and sisters,
To pray for me to the Lord our God.

Of all things visible and invisible.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
He suffered death and was buried,
And rose again on the third day
In accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit , the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.

I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins
And I look forward to the resurrection of the dead
And the life of the world to come.  Amen.

Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried;

 the living and the dead.
