Prayers – part three

Dear readers,

Last, but not least, although maybe not as well known due to the length of it, is the Apostle’s Creed. I have been copying it every day for the past week or so in this little notebook.

It’s my holy notebook, you could say. The good thing is that it is helping the Apostles Creed to imprint itself in my memory.

So, here we go again.

Apostle’s Creed

I believe in God, the Father, Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth,
And in Jesus Christ, his only begotten son, our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary.
Suffered under Pontius Pilate, crucified, died and buried, he descended into hell
The third day, he rose again from the dead; he ascended into Heaven, and sits at the right-hand of God.
From thence, he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the Communion of Saints,
The forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body,
And the life everlasting.
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

One response to “Prayers – part three

  • Francisco Jiménez

    This prayer is quite ancient and is the result of theological struggles, with different versions among the denominations.

    Here’s an article examining it-http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apostles%27_Creed
