DEUS meus, firmiter credo Te esse unum
O MY GOD, I firmly believe that Thou art
Deum in tribus distinctis Personis, Patre,
one God in three divine persons, Father, Son
Filio et Spiritu Sancto; et Filium propter
and Holy Spirit; I believe that Thy divine
nostram salutem incarnatum, passum et
Son became man and died for our sins, and
mortuum esse, resurrexisse a mortuis, et
that He shall come to judge the living and
unicuique pro meritis retribuere aut
the dead. I believe these and all the truths
praemium in Paradiso aut poenam in
which the holy Catholic Church teaches,
Inferno. Haec ceteraque omnia quae credit et
because Thou hast revealed them, Who
docet catholica Ecclesia, credo quia Tu ea
canst neither deceive nor be deceived. Amen
revelasti, qui nec ipse falli nec nos fallere
Actus Spei
Act of Hope
DEUS meus, cum sis omnipotens, infinite
misericors et fidelis, spero Te mihi daturum,
ob merita Iesu Christi, vitam aeternam et
gratias necessarias ad eam consequendam,
quam Tu promisisti iis qui bona opera
facient, quemadmodum, Te adiuvante,
facere constituo. Amen.

O MY GOD, relying on Thy almighty power

and infinite mercy and promises, I hope to
obtain pardon for my sins, the help of Thy
grace, and life everlasting, through the
merits of Jesus Christ, my Lord and
Redeemer. Amen.

Actus Caritatis
Act of Love
DEUS meus, ex toto corde amo Te super
omnia, quia es infinite bonus et infinite
amabilis; et ob amorem Tui proximum
meum diligo sicut meipsum, eique, si quid
in me offendit, ignosco. Amen

O MY GOD, I love Thee above all things,

with my whole heart and soul, because Thou
art all-good and worthy of all love. I love
my neighbor as myself for the love of Thee.
I forgive all who have injured me, and ask
pardon of all whom I have injured. Amen.

Ask of God light to discover the sins committed this day:

O MY God, sovereign Judge of men, who desirest not the death of a sinner, but that he should be
converted and saved, enlighten my mind, that I may know the sins which I have this day
committed in thought, word, and deed, and give me the grace of true contrition.

Here examine your conscience; then say:

Actus Contritionis
Act of Contrition
DEUS meus, ex toto corde paenitet me
omnium meorum peccatorum, eaque
detestor, quia peccando, non solum poenas a
Te iuste statutas promeritus sum, sed
praesertim quia offendi Te, summum
bonum, ac dignum qui super omnia diligaris.
Ideo firmiter propono, adiuvante gratia Tua,
de cetero me non peccaturum peccandique
occasiones proximas fugiturum. Amen.

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having

offended Thee, and I detest all my sins,
because I dread the loss of heaven, and the
pains of hell, but most of all because they
offend Thee, my God, Who are all good and
deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve,
with the help of Thy grace, to confess my
sins, to do penance, and amend my life.

Apostolos Petrum et Paulum, et omnes
Sanctos, orare pro me ad Dominum Deum

Archangel, to blessed John the Baptist, to
the holy apostles Peter and Paul, and to all

through my fault, through my most grievous
fault. Therefore, I beseech blessed Mary

blessed John the Baptist, the holy apostles
