Act of Contrition

Oh my God, I am sorry for my sins.

In choosing to sin, and failing to do good,

I have sinned against You and Your Church.

I firmly intend, with the help of Your Son,

to make up for my sins and to love as I should. 

Amen.

Prayer Before Communion

Lord, I am not worthy

that you should enter under my roof,

but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.
