Pater noster, Qui [es in cælis]1,
sanctificetur nomen Tuum;
[adveniat]2 regnum tuum;
fiat voluntas tua,
sicut in cælo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie;
et dimitte nobis debita nostra,
sicut et nos [dimittimus]3 debitoribus nostris;
et ne [nos inducas]4 in tentationem;
sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

Ave Maria gratia plena
Dominus tecum. 
Benedicta tu in mulieribus, 
Et benedictus fructus [ventris]1 tui Jesus.
Sancta Maria, [Mater Dei]2,
Ora pro nobis peccatoribus,
Nunc et in hora mortis nostrae.
[Ave Maria]3.
