Prayers

Dear readers,

The days are counting near to my baptism, confirmation and communion with the Catholic Church. It will be a full house, with the cardinal himself doing the deed. It will be at Semana Santa, a holy tradition in the faith. In the last couple of weeks I have been studying creeds and prayers, which must be remembered and dictated at the ceremony: the Apostale’s Creed, The Lord’s Prayer and the Hail Mary. Those reading who are Catholic will know them very well, and will also remember studying them.

The Lord’s Prayer I remember from youth. The other two, no. To revise, I’ve been writing and rewriting them in a little book daily. Today I thought I would practice them on my blog, share them with the world (a lot of the world already knows it). I’m having problems with the order of them. Especially the Apostale’s Creed. Getting there though. Tonight just the Hail Mary

Hail Mary

Hail Mary,
Full of grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed thou art among women,
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God.
Pray for us sinners,
Now and at the hour of death

Amen.

About Nicholas Rogers

I am an English journalist/copywriter living in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, and I have been here since 2011. I originally came to work with Casa Alianza, which supports street kids and vulnerable youths. I then stayed on, after meeting Pamela Cruz Lozano, who calls me her adopted Catracho. I work freelance journalism and I have my own translation business. Why did I come here? For the challenge, to open my mind and get out of my comfort zone. I love literature and I've written a book with street kids. I write novels, short stories and poetry, all of which you will find on this blog, as well as a lot of information about Honduras. View all posts by Nicholas Rogers
