The Act of Contrition
Jesu mitis et humilis corde, Fac cor nostrum secundum Cor tuum. (ter)
Dearest Jesus, please help make me more contrite and mean it when I say I am sorry! Amen.
My Jesus, mercy!
Oh 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 art all-good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to confess my sins, do penance, and to amend my life. Amen.
Deus propitius esto mihi peccatori.
