Acts of Faith, Hope, Love and Sorrow


My God, I firmly believe
that you are one God in three divine Persons,
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Father, I believe that your divine Son became man
and died for our sins and that he will come
to judge the living and the dead.
I believe these and all the truths
which the Holy Catholic Church teaches
because you have revealed them
who are eternal truth and wisdom,
who can neither deceive nor be deceived.
In this faith I intend to live and die. Amen.


Lord God,
I hope by your grace
for the pardon of all my sins
and after life here
to gain eternal happiness
because you have promised it
who are infinitely powerful, faithful, kind, and merciful.
In this hope I intend to live and die. Amen.


Lord God, I love you above all things
and I love my neighbor for your sake
because you are the highest, infinite and perfect good,
worthy of all my love.
In this love I intend to live and die. Amen.


O God of my soul,
I am sincerely sorry
for not having loved you.
Instead of having loved you,
I have, for the sake of my pleasures,
offended and despised your infinite goodness:
I have turned my back on you;
in a word, O my God,
I have lost you through my own will.
Lord, I am sorry,
from the bottom of my heart,
for all my sins.
I hate above all things the offences,
which I have committed against you.
You have already cleansed me
from the stain of sin
in the sacrament of penance,
but I desire to become still purer in your sight.
Wash in your Blood this soul,
and make it your dwelling place.
