The Nicene Creed

This creed describes the first requirements of belief to be a Catholic in the "hierarchy of truth"  

I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, Maker of Heaven and Earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all ages; God of God, Light of Light, true God of true God; begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; by whom all things were made. Who, for us men and our salvation, [bow during liturgy] came down from Heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary, and became a man [rise from bow during liturgy]; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again, in accordance with the Scriptures; and ascended into Heaven, and sits at the right hand of the Father; and He shall come again, with glory, to judge the living and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father, who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; who spoke by the prophets.

I believe in one holy universal and apostolic Church.  I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; and I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen        

The Benedictus in English

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel;

he has come to his people and set them free.

He has raised up for us a mighty savior,

born of the house of his servant David.

Through his holy prophets he promised of old

that he would save us from our enemies,

from the hands of all who hate us.

He promised to show mercy to our fathers

and to remember his holy covenant.

This was the oath he swore to our father


to set us free from the hands of our enemies,

free to worship him without fear,

holy and righteous in his sight all the days of our life.

You, my child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High;

for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way,

to give his people knowledge of salvation

by the forgiveness of their sins.

In the tender compassion of our God

the dawn from on high shall break upon us,

to shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death,

and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,

as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

Benedictus in Latin

Benedíctus Dóminus, Deus Ísrael,

quia visitávit

et fecit redemptiónem plebi suæ,

et eréxit cornu salútis nobis

in domo David púeri sui,

sicut locútus est per os sanctórum,

qui a sæculo sunt, prophetárum eius,

salútem ex inimícis nostris

et de manu ómnium,

qui odérunt nos;

ad faciéndam misericórdiam

cum pátribus nostris

et memorári testaménti sui sancti,

iusiurándum, quod iurávit

ad Ábraham patrem nostrum,

datúrum se nobis,

ut sine timóre,

de manu inimicórum liberáti,

serviámus illi

in sanctitáte et iustítia coram ipso

ómnibus diébus nostris.

Et tu, puer,

prophéta Altíssimi vocáberis:

præíbis enim ante fáciem Dómini

paráre vias eius,

ad dandam sciéntiam salútis

plebi eius

in remissiónem peccatórum eórum,

per víscera misericórdiæ Dei nostri,

in quibus visitábit nos óriens ex alto,

illumináre his, qui in ténebris

et in umbra mortis sedent,

ad dirigéndos pedes nostros

in viam pacis.

Glória Patri et Fílio

et Spirítui Sancto.

Sicut erat in princípio,

et nunc

et semper,

et in sæcula sæculórum. Amen.
