Act of Contrition

My God, I am sorry for my sins
with all my heart, and I detest them.
In 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 help, to do penance,
to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin.

Our savior Jesus Christ suffered and died for us.
In His name, my God, have mercy.


Prayer Instruction:

To be said during the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
