Act of Contrition Prayer


The Act of Contrition is often prayed during the Sacrament of Reconciliation, but it can be prayed anytime.

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended You, 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 You, my God, Who are all-good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to confess my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life. Amen.
