Prayer After Confession
SIT tibi, Domine, obsecro, meritis beatae semper Virginis Genetricis tuae Mariae et omnium Sanctorum, grata et accepta ista confessio mea, et quidquid mihi defuit nunc, et de sufficientia contritionis, de puritate et integritate confessionis, suppleat pietas et misericordia tua et secundum illam digneris me habere plenius et perfectius absolutum in caelo. Qui vivis et regnas cum Deo Patre in unitate Spiritus Sancti, Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum. Amen. I BESEECH Thee, O Lord, that my confession may be made acceptable and pleasing to Thee by the merits of Thy blessed and ever Virgin Mother and all the Saints. May Thy compassion and mercy fulfill whatever may be lacking in me in contrition, purity, or completeness of confession. Mercifully pardon all my deficiencies that according to this greatness of mercy, I may be fully and perfectly absolved in heaven. Thou who livest and reignest with God the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever. Amen.

From the Paradisus Animae, 1670 & the Roman Sacramentary. Tr. MWM.
