Help Catholics of Any Age Learn or Remember the Act of Contrition Prayer
This set of two identical learning cards focuses on the Act of Contrition prayer, which is a necessity in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. This read-only style learning card serves as a reference for this prayer and is small enough to take just about anywhere.
The version of this prayer used in this printable card 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 sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin. Amen.
To create this card set simply print, cut apart cards on the lines, fold down the center and glue. Laminate cards for longevity and durability. Laminating these sets makes a very durable resource that is sure to be used repeatedly or stored more easily. It also adds value to the card telling your learner that this prayer is important and worth preserving or protecting until it can be committed to memory.
Learning cards are a great help for CCD or Religious Education classes as children enjoy using the cards and referring to them often, especially if they have been laminated and feel like a real "learning gem" in their hands. Cards can easily be stored in a recipe box, decorative shoe box or in a large, index sized plastic container with divider tabs - like the kind you find at office supply stores.
