        DURING THIS FIRST WEEK IN THE CHRISTIAN SEASON OF LENT, LET US BEGIN THIS DAY TURNING TO GOD AND OUR NEIGHBORS TO CONFESS OUR SIN. MOST HOLY AND MERCIFUL GOD, WE CONFESS TO YOU AND TO ONE ANOTHER AND BEFORE THE WHOLE COMPANY OF HEAVEN THAT WE HAVE SINNED BY OUR FAULT, BY OUR OWN FAULT, BY OUR OWN MOST GRIEVE YUSS FAULT IN THOUGHT, WORD, AND DEED. BY WHAT WE HAVE DONE AND BY WHAT WE HAVE LEFT UNDONE. WE HAVE NOT LOVED YOU WITH OUR WHOLE HEART AND MIND AND STRENGTH. WE HAVE NOT FORGIVEN AND FREED OTHERS AS WE HAVE BEEN FORGIVEN AND FREED. RESTORE US, O GOD, AND LET YOUR ANGER DEPART FROM US. ACCOMPLISH IN US THE WORK OF YOUR SALVATION. HAVE MERCY ON US, ALMIGHTY GOD, FORGIVE US ALL OUR SINS, STRENGTHEN IN ALL GOODNESS, AND KEEP US IN ETERNAL LIFE. AMEN.
