Confession Preparation

Pippin is getting ready for his very much needed First Confession. As he told me one day, he really only has about 100 sins to confess.  So we've been working on the Act of Contrition. I don't know why my children mess it up when we say it every single night, but they do.  I decided I better listen carefully to what he was saying.  I kid you not (bold mine):
O My God, I'm heart-ly sorry for having offended Thee and I'm testing all my sins because I dread the loss of hezzen and the pains of hell but most of all because they offend thee my father ever this day be at my side to light and guard to rule and guide. Amen.

(at least he got the "testing all my sins" correct.... come to think of it, he's testing all mine too)
