Act of Contrition

As sinners, we recognize both our human limitations and failures and also God’s limitless love for us. God loves and forgives us, and the sacrament of reconciliation makes this gift of forgiveness a reality in the life of the sinner. We are restored to a proper relationship with God. Through the cleansing of our sins and guilt, we are once again made whole and holy.

 

Act of Contrition

My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart.

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 the help of your grace, 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, O Lord, have mercy.
