Help Children Commit the Act of Contrition to Memory.
This fill-in the blank worksheet requires children to read through the Act of Contrition Prayer and provide key words to complete the sentences. A matching image of a penitent person is provided, and an answer sheet is included.
This activity can be useful when helping children prepare to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
The version of the text used in this worksheet is as follows.
O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended You.
I detest all my sins because of Your just punishments,
but most of all because they offend You, my God,
Who are all good and deserving of all my love.
I firmly resolve, with the help of Your grace,
to confess my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life. Amen.
