PRAYER OF ST. MELANIA THE YOUNGER For pardon Of Faults

I have consecrated my entire self to You,
and taking me by Your right hand
You have led me with Your counsel.
But in my human frailty
I have sinned both in word and deed may times against You,
who alone are pure and without sin.
Therefore, accept my prayer together
with the tears I offer You through Your holy ones,
the victors in the arena.
Purify me, this poor handmaid of Yours,
so that on departing toward You
my passage may be hastened.
