ALL-HOLY FATHER, WE CONFESS OURSELVES UNWORTHY OF THINE UNSPEAKABLE GIFT. WE HAVE NOT LOVED THEE AS WE OUGHT, NOR HAVE WE ALWAYS BEEN LOVING AND FORGIVING TO ONE ANOTHER, EVEN AS THOU, FOR CHRIST’S SAKE, HAST FORGIVEN US. WE HAVE LIVED IN SELFISHNESS AND WORLDLY PRIDE, AND THE GOOD GIFTS THOU HAST BESTOWED UPON US WE HAVE NOT USED TO RELIEVE THE BURDENS OF OTHERS. PARDON AND BLOT OUT OUR OFFENSES, THROUGH THE INCARNATE LIFE AND WILLING SACRIFICE OF THY HOLY SON. AMEN.
