Act of contrition #13
  To be recited when going to bed , to wash out our heart of the dust of the day  
O , my God , I am heartily sorry for having offended you ,
either by action or by omission ,
because you are all-good and deserving of all my love.
Forgive me through the merits of Jesus-Christ, my Savior.
I firmly resolve , with the help of Your grace ,
to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin.
Teach me to despise myself ,
you who resist the proud , but give grace to the humble.
       Mea Culpa.   Mea Culpa.   Mea maxima Culpa.
