In my desire for the mundane and temporal, I forfeited the good things of eternity. Set aright my thinking, O loving Lord, and save my wretched soul from sin.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
Accept my repentance as you did the thief’s and the sinful woman’s. Spurn me not as I return, O Lord most merciful, but forgive all my sins both voluntary and involuntary.
Now and ever and forever. Amen.
Continually in remorse over my spiritual downfall, Immaculate Virgin, I cry out to you for help: O compassionate Lady, God-bearing Virgin, save my soul from eternal damnation!
