ROSARY Apostles Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth ; and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord ; Who w as conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, w as crucified, died and w as buried. He descended into hell ; the third day He arose again from the dead ; He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty ; from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
