Pray is just "Party" without the "t" and some of the letters mixed up

Are you ready for the NEW YEAR? Here's a checklist!
1- Champagne, chilled.

2- New Year's Jams, downloaded (extended mix of "Call Me Maybe" included)
3-Taxi cab numbers, saved

4-Silly hat and whistle, on stand by
5-Resolutions, ready to be broken. CHOCOLATE IS A CRUEL MISTRESS!!!
6-All temporal punishments due to sins committed, removed...whaaaaaaaaaaaat?

Never fear:

Te Deum   
O God, we praise Thee, and acknowledge Thee to be the supreme Lord.
Everlasting Father, all the earth worships Thee.
All the Angels, the heavens and all angelic powers,
All the Cherubim and Seraphim, continuously cry to Thee:
Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Hosts!
Heaven and earth are full of the Majesty of Thy glory.
The glorious choir of the Apostles,
The wonderful company of Prophets,
The white-robed army of Martyrs, praise Thee.
Holy Church throughout the world acknowledges Thee:
The Father of infinite Majesty;
Thy adorable, true and only Son;
Also the Holy Spirit, the Comforter.
O Christ, Thou art the King of glory!
Thou art the everlasting Son of the Father.
When Thou tookest it upon Thyself to deliver man,
Thou didst not disdain the Virgin's womb.
Having overcome the sting of death, Thou opened the Kingdom of Heaven to all
Thou sitest at the right hand of God in the glory of the Father.
We believe that Thou willst come to be our Judge.
We, therefore, beg Thee to help Thy servants whom Thou hast redeemed with Thy
Precious Blood.
Let them be numbered with Thy Saints in everlasting glory.

V.  Save Thy people, O Lord, and bless Thy inheritance!
R.  Govern them, and raise them up forever.

V.  Every day we thank Thee.
R.  And we praise Thy Name forever, yes, forever and ever.

V.  O Lord, deign to keep us from sin this day.
R.  Have mercy on us, O Lord, have mercy on us.

V.  Let Thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, for we have hoped in Thee.
R.  O Lord, in Thee I have put my trust; let me never be put to shame.*

Now you're ready (after you've read the FINE PRINT).



 The Fine Print:
* To obtain a plenary indulgence, you must fulfill three requirements:
  1. Sacrament of Reconciliation, or Confession as most Catholics know it.
  2. Receive Holy Communion.
  3. A prayer for the Pope's intentions, which is at least one Our Father and a Hail Mary. The Pope's intentions are world peace, the growth of the Church, and conversion of non-Catholics to Catholicism
