I confess to almighty God And to you, my brothers and sisters, That I have sinned through My own fault In my thoughts and in my words, In what I have done, And in what I have failed to do; And I ask blessed Mary, ever virgin, All the angels and saints, And you, my brothers and sisters, To pray for me to the Lord, our God.
