Act of Contrition

O, my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you.

I detest all my sins because of your just punishment,
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 Your grace,
to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin.
