Act of ContritionO 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.
Act of Contrition:
For all sins, including
Sins of Omission
Forgive me my sins, O Lord,
forgive me my sins;
the sins of my youth,
the sins of my age,
the sins of my soul,
the sins of my body;
my idle sins,
my serious voluntary sins;
the sins I know,
the sins I do not know;
the sins I have concealed for so long,
and which are now hidden from my memory.
I am truly sorry for every sin, mortal and venial,
for all the sins of my childhood up to the present hour.
I know my sins have wounded Thy Tender Heart,
O My Savior, let me be freed from the bonds of evil
through the most bitter Passion of My Redeemer.
