Act of contrition
My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you whom I should love above all things. I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin. Our Saviour Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. In his name, my God, have mercy.
Mary, whose Immaculate heart was pierced by 7 painful swords, help me to walk with courage in the midst of this path full of thorns. Let me obtain the strength to follow you as my role model. I ask this of you, Most Loving Mother... (state your intention)
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory to the Father.
Take a moment to treasure up all these things and ponder them in your heart (cf Luke 2,19)
Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone. Col 4:6
