Act of Contrition
My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart,
in choosing to do wrong and in 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.
My soul proclaims the goodness of the Lord.
My spirit rejoices in God my Savior
for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed
the Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.
He has mercy on those who fear him in every generation.
He has shown strength of his arm,
he has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
and has lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to help of hos servant Israel for he has remembered his promise of mercy,
the promise he made to our fathers, to Abraham, and his children for ever. Amen.
