Actus Contritionis

The Actus Contritionis; although a classic Catholic prayer, is one that can and should be said by every Christian, as even though we strive to be born again and pure as the lamb, we often fall short of our goal.

O MY God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you and I detest all my sins not just because of your just punishments, but most of all because they offend you, my God, who art all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of your grace, to sin no more and avoid the near occasions of sin. Amen.
