Catholics use the Glory Be prayer daily. We use it both in the Mass and the Rosary.

There's hardly an easier prayer to learn and there's hardly one that gives more glory to God, especially to God as the Holy Trinity. It is the main prayer that Our Lady prayed when she appeared in the grotto to St. Bernadette of Lourdes in France.

Glory Be Prayer

Glory be to the Father,
And to the Son,
And to the Holy Ghost,
As it was in the beginning,
Is now, and ever shall be world without end. Amen.

Generally, families that say their daily Rosary have already taught this prayer to their children since it is said at the end of every decade of Hail Marys. It's actually fun to teach to children because of its poem like rhythm.

We like to pass on that a very old priest said that it is important to say the "and to the" well so as to preserve the equality in the prayer of the Three Persons in One God, the Blessed Trinity. This applies to making the sign of the Cross, too. Use care remembering that God is listening. 

This prayer is a statement of faith in the Blessed Trinity. It honors God as three Divine Persons in one Divine Nature.

Pentecost - The Descent of the Holy Ghost

Father, Son, And Holy Ghost

There are three Persons in One God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. We attribute Creation to God the Father, Salvation to God the Son - Jesus Christ, and Sanctification to God the Holy Ghost. Each time one acts, though all three are present and cooperating as One.

These are the basic facts about the Blessed Trinity that all should know as they prepare to receive the sacraments. 

This prayer is easy to learn. St. Anne's Helper offers an audio version with both the First Communion and the Confirmation Catechism as well as a Catholic worksheets in the Catechism Copybook.

The text of both the First Communion and the Catholic Confirmation Catechisms are also available as Catechism Copybook Ebooks as well! You can reprint as many as you would like. The First Communion Catechism Copybook is available in beautiful Manuscript. The Confirmation Catechism Copybook is available in either beautiful Manuscript or beautiful Cursive writing - your choice! They can be spiral bound at an office supply store, printed on 3-holed paper to keep in a binder (our favorite way), or used as printable worksheets. They are downloadable here.
