The Nicene Creed
The Nicene Creed is the official prayer for the Year of Faith. The Vatican website for the Year of Faith explains: “It is by believing with the heart that you are justified, and by making the declaration with your lips that you are saved. May the Year of Faith lead all believers to learn by heart the Creed, and to say it every day as a prayer, so that the breathing agrees with the faith.”
I believe in one God the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through Him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation He came down from heaven,
(at the following words, up to and including “and became man,” all bow)
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate, He suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead.
His kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets;
I believe in one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church.
I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. AMEN+.
