Contrite
[kuh n-trahyt, kon-trahyt] (adj.) filled with a sense of guilt and the desire for atonement.

 

“The spirit of non-violence necessarily leads to humility.  Non-violence means reliance on God, the rock of ages.  If we would seek His aid, we must approach Him with a humble and contrite heart.”
