Repentance - Admitting error


"How does one admit sin? One says: 'Please, Gd, I have sinned accidentally/intentionally/rebelliously before You, I have done such-and-such, I regret it and I am embarassed by it, and I will never return to it.'

"This is the essence of viduy (admission); one who does more is praiseworthy."

(Maimonides, Mishneh Torah, Laws of Repentance 1:1)

Have a great day,
