O my God
and my all,
in Thy goodness and mercy,
grant that before I die
I may regain all the graces
which I have lost through my carelessness and folly.
Permit me to attain the degree of merit
to which Thou didst desire to lead me,
and which I failed by my unfaithfulness to reach.
Mercifully grant also that others regain the graces
which they have lost through my fault.
This I humbly beg through the merits
of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
and Immaculate Virgin Mary.
