'Create and make in us new and contrite hearts....' - Ash Wednesday 2011

Almighty and everlasting God, You hate nothing that You have  made and You forgive the sins of all those who are penitent; create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of You, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one true God, SAECULA SAECULORUM.
