State Prayer

"Act of Faith"

O my God, I firmly believe that You are one God in three divine Persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
I believe that Your divine Son became man, died for our sins, and that He will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe these truths which the Holy Catholic Church teaches, because You have revealed them, Who can never deceive nor be deceived.
