Act of Contrition

O my God,
I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee,
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 Thee, my God,
Who are all good
and deserving of all my love.
I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace,
to sin no more,
and to avoid the near occasions of sin.
Amen.
