O 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.
