Act of Contrition
Heavenly Father, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart.
I am sorry for 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 your divine assistance:
- to do penance;
- to sin no more, and;
- to avoid whatever that leads me to sin.
Through the saving sacrifice of our Savior Lord Jesus Christ,
for the sake of His sorrowful passion,
Almighty Father, have mercy on us.
