The Act Of Contrition

O my God,
I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee,
and I detest all my sins because of thy just punishment,
but most of all because they offend Thee, My God,
who art 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 occasion of sin.
Amen.
