Act of Contrition 1
O, my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee,
and I detest all my sins because I fear 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 sin no more,
to do penance and to amend my life. Amen.
Act of Contrition 2
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 Your help, 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, my God, have mercy. Amen.
