Prayer to Our Lady of Seattle

Holy Mary, we come before you as spiritual?children in great need, seeking?your intercession, and asking that your mantle of love surround us to console,?protect?and lead us to your son Jesus.

We entrust all of God’s family, especially the Church in Western Washington into your Immaculate hands.? With your Son Jesus’ gentle power you can?undo any knot?in our Church, and in the lives of believers who entrust themselves to your care.

Today I especially entrust to you?[mention request here/Coronavirus], and I ask that – through your intercession, and that of Saint James, our Guardian Angels, and the faithful?in our diocese – we may be free from every spiritual and temporal ill, and be safely led to encounter your Son’s Merciful, Sacred Heart.

Our Lady of Seattle, Undoer of Knots, pray for us!?”

Act of Contrition

Traditional Act of Contrition

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins because of thy just punishments, but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, who art all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve with the help of Thy grace to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin. Amen.

Act of Contrition (alternate form)

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 Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. In his name, my God, have mercy. Amen.

Act of Perfect Contrition

The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) teaches that when it is not possible to go to confession by the normal means, that we can make an Act of Perfect Contrition.

“When it arises from a love by which God is loved above all else, contrition is called “perfect” (contrition of charity). Such contrition remits venial sins; it also obtains forgiveness of mortal sins if it includes the firm resolution to have recourse to sacramental confession as soon as possible.” ?(CCC 1452)
