Act of Sorrow

January 18, 2019

O God of my soul,
I am sincerely sorry
for not having loved You.
Instead of having loved You,
I have, for the sake of my pleasures,
offended and despised Your infinite goodness:
I have turned my back upon You;
in a word, O my God,
I have voluntarily lost You.
Lord, I am sorry,
from the bottom of my heart,
for all my sins.
I hate above all things the offences,
which I have committed against You.
I hope You have already cleansed me
from the stain of sin
in the sacrament of penance,
but I desire to become still purer in Your sight.
Vouchsafe then to wash in Your Blood this soul,
which You wish soon to make Your dwelling place.
