Act of Contrition

Since it is difficult to go to Confession just now as our Churches are closed- please say the following prayer of Contrition and entrust yourself to the mercy of God and ask pardon and when the restrictions are lifted then take the opportunity to go to Confession when possible……..

Individual Act of Contrition

O Lord, forgive me my sins,

the sins of my youth, the sins of my age,

the sins of my soul.

The sins of my body,

my idle sins.

My serious voluntary sins,

the sins I know, the sins I do not know.

The sins I have concealed so long

and which are now hidden from my memory.

I am truly sorry for every sin,

mortal and venial,

for all the sins of my childhood

up to the present hour.

I know my sins have wounded your tender heart.

O my saviour,

let me be freed from the bonds of evil,

through the most bitter passion of my redeemer.

O my Jesus,

forget and forgive what I have been.
