General Prayers

The Confiteor

I confess to almighty God
that I have sinned through my own fault,
in my thoughts and my words,
in what I have done,
and in what I have failed to do;
and I ask blessed Mary, ever virgin,
and all the angels and saints,
to pray for me to the Lord our God.

An Act of Contrition

O my God, because you are so good,
I am very sorry that I have sinned against you
and by the help of your grace
I will not sin again.
