Act of Contrition

† Act of Contrition †

My God I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, because Thou art all good and worthy of all love, and because sin displeases Thee.
Pardon me through the merits of the passion and death of Jesus Christ Thy Divine Son.
I purpose by the help of Thy holy grace never more to offend Thee and to do penance, and to avoid the near occasions of sin.
