Atto di dolore
Act of Contrition

Mio Dio, mi pento e mi dolgo con tutto il cuore dei miei peccati, perché peccando ho meritato i tuoi castighi, e molto più perché ho offeso te, infinitamente buono e degno di essere amato sopra ogni cosa. Propongo con il tuo santo aiuto di non offenderti mai più e di fuggire le occasioni prossime di peccato. Signore, misericordia, perdonami.

(My God, I repent and sorrow with all my heart for my sins, because by sinning I have deserved your punishments, and much more because I have offended you, [who are] infinitely good and worthy of being loved above all things. I propose with your holy help never to offend you again and to flee future occasions of sin. Lord, [have] mercy, forgive me.)

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins because of thy just punishments, 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. Amen.
