Jesus' Sacred Heart is full of love and mercy for us. What better holy image than our radiant illustration of the Sacred Heart to pair with the Act of Contrition?
Personalize it for a special gift of faith!

The Act of Contrition is an essential Catholic prayer all Catholics want to know. “Contrition” comes from the Latin contristare, “to be with sadness.” We're used to praying it during Confession, usually right before the priest says, “I absolve you from your sins, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”  But it's also especially appropriate to pray before going to sleep.
The Sacred Heart: Act of Contrition Prayer Pillowcase is sure helpful to have on hand for youngsters (and adults new to the Faith) learning this important prayer.
The Act of Contrition:
O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins, because I dread the loss of Heaven and the pains of hell, 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 confess my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life. Amen
