O Lord, Master, Jesus Christ our God, You alone have authority to forgive sins because You are good and the lover of mankind. Forgive all my transgressions committed knowingly or unknowingly, and grant that I may partake, without condemnation, of Your divine, glorious, pure and life-creating Mysteries. May this communion not be for condemnation, or for the increase of sin, but for cleansing, sanctification and to obtain life in the kingdom, which is to come. Let this Eucharist be a defense and help against those who fight against me, to the elimination of my many iniquities. For You are the God of mercy and compassion and the lover of mankind and to You is due all glory, together with the Father and the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.

Lord and Master, I am not worthy or sufficiently pleasing for You enter under the roof of the house of my soul. Since You, the Lover of mankind, wish to dwell in me, I boldly approach. Command me, and I shall open the doors, which You yourself have made. In your constant love for mankind You may enter in and enlighten my darkened mind. I believe You will do this, for You did not send away the harlot who came to you in tears or the publican who repented. You did not refuse the thief who acknowledged Your kingdom, or the penitent persecutor, Paul, to continue in his ways. Rather, You numbered among Your friends all those who came to You in penitence, for You alone are blessed always, now and ever and to ages of ages. Amen.
