New acts of contrition

Dr Joseph Show on his blog has given us a new and updated act of contrition for the times. I rather like it:

'O my God, because thou art so good, I am not at all sorry that I have offended thee, and with the help of thy grace I will offend thee again and again.'

Here is my version, as bleak as it is brief: 

O my God, because I am so good, I cannot see how I have offended Thee, and thanks to this criterion of inculpability, I will not sin again.

What can I say but St Pascal, pray for us?
