Penitential Rite

All:

I confess to almighty God,

and to you, my brothers and sisters,

that I have sinned through my own fault

in my thoughts and in my words,

in what I have done,

and in what I have failed to do;

and I ask blessed Mary, ever virgin,

all the angels and saints,

and you, my brothers and sisters,

to pray for me to the Lord our God.

 

Leader:

May almighty God have mercy on us,

forgive us our sins, and bring us to everlasting life.

 

All: Amen.

 

Leader: Lord, have mercy.

All: Lord, have mercy.

 

Leader: Christ, have mercy.

All: Christ, have mercy.

 

Leader: Lord, have mercy.

All: Lord, have mercy.
