Act of contriction

O my God, I am sorry and beg pardon for all my sins,
I detest them above all things,
because they deserve Your dreadful punishments,
because they have crucified my loving Saviour Jesus Christ,
and most of all, because they offend Your infinite goodness;
and I firmly resolve,
by the help of Your grace,
never to offend You again,
and carefully to avoid the occasions of sin.
