The Sub Tuum
We fly to thy patronage, O holy Mother of God; despise not our petitions in our necessities; but deliver us always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
A longer form of the Act of Contrition
O my God, I am sorry and beg pardon for all my sins. I detest them above all things, because they deserve your dreadful punishments, because they have crucified my loving Saviour Jesus Christ, and most of all because they offend your infinite goodness. I firmly resolve, by the help of your grace, never to offend you again, and carefully to avoid the occasions of sin. Amen.
