The Lord's Prayer

Latin English

PATER noster, qui es in caelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum.

OUR Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.

Adveniat regnum tuum.

Thy kingdom come.

Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra.

Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie, et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.

Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.

Et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo.


And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.


This prayer comes directly from Matthew 6 verses 9 to 13 and has been used in the Church from the very beginning. It was incorporated into the Mass during the 4th century.
