Another Version of Acts of Faith, Hope and Love*
ACT OF FAITH:
O my God, I firmly believe that Thou art one God in three Divine Persons, Father, Son and Holy Ghost; I believe that Thy Divine Son became man, and died for our sins, and that He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe these and all the truths which the Holy Catholic Church teaches, because Thou hast revealed them, who canst neither deceive or be deceived.
ACT OF HOPE:
O my God, relying on Thy infinite goodness and promises, I hope to obtain pardon of my sins, the help of Thy grace, and life everlasting, through the merits of Jesus Christ, my Lord, and my Redeemer.
ACT OF LOVE:
O my God, I love Thee above all things, with my whole heart and soul, because Thou are all good and deserving of my love. I love my neighbor as myself for the love of Thee. I forgive all who have injured me, and I ask forgiveness from all whom I have injured.
* The Christian life is particularly concerned about these three virtues, the theological virtues, which are mentioned in Scripture:
“So, faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” (1 Corinthians 13:13).
