Act of Hope

O my God,

Relying on your infinite goodness and promises,

I hope to obtain pardon of my sins,

The help of your grace, and life everlasting,

through the merits of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Redeemer.

Now that you have been freed from sin and have

become slaves of God, the benefit that you have

leads to sanctification, and its end is eternal life.

—Rom 6:22
