I-confess to-God all-powerful

et beatæ Mariæ semper Virgini,

and to-blessed to-Mary always virgin

et beato Dominico Patri nostro,
ayt bay-AH-toh doh-MEE-nee-koh PAH-tree NOHS-troh
and to-blessed to-Dominic to-Father to-ours

et omnibus Sanctis, et vobis, fratres,
ayt OHM-nee-boos SAHNK-tees, ayt VOH-bees, FRAH-trays

and to-all to-Saints, and to-you, brothers

quia peccavi nimis cogitatione,
KWEE-ah payk-KAH-vee NEE-mees koh-jee-taht-see-OH-nay

because I-have-sinned according-to thought,

locutione, opere, et omissione,
loh-koot-see-OH-nay, OH-pay-ray, ayt oh-mee-see-OH-nay,
speach, work, and omission

mea culpa;

by-mine by-fault;

precor vos orare pro me.
PRAY-kohr vohs oh-RAH-ray pro may.
I-beg you to-pray for me.

Remember Pray in Latin — Satan Hates it!
