Act of Contrition
My Lord, Jesus Christ, true God and true man, in whom I believe, in whom I hope, in whom I love above all things, I am deeply sorry for having offended Thee, because Thou are infinite goodness. I promise never more to offend Thee, with the help of Thy divine grace, and through the powerful intercession of the Blessed Mother, the Holy Virgin Mary, whom I would like to honor all the days of my life, but most particularlyduring this novena which I dedicate to the glory of her most holy name. AMEN.

O most lovable Queen and Mother Mary, whose sweet name gladdens the heavens, consoles the earth and daunts hell! O peerless greatness granted to Thee by Him who is omnipotent, that all might share in the benefits of the plenitude, namely: the sick their cure, the sorrowful their consolation, the sinners their forgiveness, the angels their joys, and the blessed Trinity untold glory! To Thee I have recourse in this novena, as armor for my defense, as a medicine for my health, as a consolation for my grief, as an effective relief for my burdens, as help unto the remission of my sins and as a universal remedy for all my needs; therefore, I beseech Thee time and again and frequently repeat these sweet words:
Virgin of Peñafrancia, pray for us! (3x).
May I deserve from thy mercy and benevolence a participation in the benign influence of thy name and may I become one of thy most faithful children, so that living always under this precious protection, may I be granted the special intention of this novena, if it be for the greater honor and glory of God and the salvation of my soul.
