ACT OF CONTRITION

O my God,  I am heartily sorry for having offended You.  
I detest all my sins because I dread the loss of Heaven 
 and the pains of hell.
    
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 occasions of sin.
    
Amen.
