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.

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.

The 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.

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.

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.

1st and 2nd Grade


3rd to 8th Grade

Print two up for middle school sized handwriting practice.

You can print these worksheets in several sizes depending on the grade level of your students. Small children sometimes do well with larger fonts, yet older students often appreciate a small font. Small, medium, large. Your choice.

  1. Full Sized Worksheets: Simply print full sized and double sided if you'd like to save paper. This is great for second and third grade catechism work.
  2. Booklet: Your older children will love this as handwriting practice if you print the download as a booklet. Use thin paper because 23 pieces of paper is hard to fold and staple. I've seen where ladies will sew these together.
  3. Small Font Worksheets: You can also get your printer to print this download two up so that the questions will be in consecutive order (ask me why I do that - it's so confusing to the children if the questions are in scrambled order). You can chose Multiple, 2 by 1, horizontal, and landscape orientation for a middle school font.
  4. Elegant Handwriting Worksheets: For even smaller print you can print these Multiple, 2 by 2, horizontal, and portrait orientation. This looks super elegant! Part of the secret of beautiful writing is control of the pen and a small size. Perfect for high school handwriting practice and saves ink and paper.
  5. Typing Practice: You can also copy the text file to your students' file so they can practice typing. What better than the Baltimore Catechism for learning to use the keyboard?
