Act of Contrition

O my God, I am heartily sorry
for having offended Thee, and I
detest all my sins, because I dread
the loss of heaven, and the pains
of hell, but most of all because they offend Thee my God, who are all
good and deserving of all my love.

I firmly resolve with the help of Thy
grace, to confess my sins,
to do penance, and to amend my life.
