Act of Contrition

O my God, I am heartily sorry

for having offended You,

and I detest all my sins because

of Your just punishment.

But most of all because they offend You,

my God, who are all good and

deserving of all my love.

I firmly resolve, with the help of Your grace,

to sin no more,

and to avoid the near occasion of sin.
