Recommended Book: First Epistle of Clement to the Corinthians - Kindle Edition (get Kindle app for phone) (paid link)


Receive my confession,
O most loving and gracious Lord Jesus Christ,
only hope for the salvation of my soul.
Grant to me true contrition of soul,
so that day and night I may by penance
make satisfaction for my many sins.

Savior of the world,
O good Jesus,
Who gave Yourself to the death of the Cross to save sinners,
look upon me,
most wretched of all sinners;
have pity on me,
and give me the light to know my sins,
true sorrow for them,
and a firm purpose of never committing them again.

O gracious Virgin Mary,
Immaculate Mother of Jesus,
I implore you to obtain for me
by your powerful intercession
these graces from you Divine Son.

St. Joseph, pray for me.
