The Confiteor

The Confiteor      (English/Latin)

I confess to Almighty God,                          Confiteor Deo omnipotenti,

to blessed Mary ever Virgin,                       beatae Mariae semper Virgini,

to blessed Michael the Archangel,           beato Michaeli Archangelo,

to blessed John the Baptist,                       beato Joanni Baptistae,

to the holy Apostles Peter and Paul,                 sanctis Apostolis Petro et Paulo

and to all the saints,                                                    et omnibus Sanctis,

that I have sinned exceedingly in thought,        quia peccavi nimis cogitatione,

word, and deed,                                                     verbo et opere,

through my fault (strike breast),                           mea culpa,

through my fault (strike breast),                           mea culpa,

through my most grievous fault (strike breast).      mea maxima culpa.

Therefore,                                                             Ideo,

I beseech blessed Mary ever Virgin,              precor beatam Mariam semper Virginem,

blessed Michael the Archangel,                     beatum Michaelem Archangelum,

blessed John the Baptist,                                  beatum Joannem Baptistam,

the holy Apostles Peter and Paul,                  sanctos Apostolos Petrum et Paulum,

and all the saints                                                et omnes Sanctos

to pray to the Lord our God for me.                orare pro me ad Dominum Deum nostrum.

Amen.                                                                    Amen.
