Prayer Card [English Text]
He came unto His own, and His own received Him not.... - John 1:11
For God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son; that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. - John 3:16
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.
+ In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
