Act of Sorrow

Loving Jesus stained glass - St Nicholas' Cathedral, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England

Forgive me my sins, O Lord, forgive me my sins; the sins of my youth, the sins of my age, the sins of my soul, the sins of my body; my idle sins, my serious voluntary sins, the sins I know, the sins I have concealed so long, and which are now hidden from my memory.

I am truly sorry for every sin, mortal and venial, for all the sins of my childhood up to the present hour.

I know my sins have wounded Your tender Heart, O my Savior, let me be freed from the bonds of evil through Your most bitter Passion.

O my Jesus, forget and forgive what I have been.   Amen.
