Act of Contrition
My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart.
In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good,
I have sinned against you, whom I should love above all things.
I firmly intend, with the help of your grace, to do penance,
to sin no more and to avoid whatever leads me to sin.
Our Savior, Jesus Christ, suffered and died for us.
In His Name, O Lord, have mercy.
