Act of Contrition Prayer Learning Card
Act of Contrition Prayer Learning Card Can Be a Great Little Reference for Kids.
This Act of Contrition Prayer Learning Card set has two identical cards that focus on the Act of Contrition prayer. 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 the Act of Contrition presented 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.
How to Make and Use the Act of Contrition Prayer Learning Card
Print, cut apart cards on the lines, fold down the center, and glue to create this card set. Some may want to laminate the cards for longevity and durability. Laminating these sets makes a very durable resource that will 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. This card can be helpful for those going to confession and receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Learning cards are a great help for CCD or Religious Education classes. Children often use the cards and refer to them, especially if they have been laminated and feel like a real "learning gem" in their hands. Plus, teachers can easily store cards 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.
