We must now consider the object of contrition. Under this head there are six points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether a man should be contrite on account of his punishment?

A[2] Whether, on account of original sin?

A[3] Whether, for every actual sin he has committed?

A[4] Whether, for actual sins he will commit?

A[5] Whether, for the sins of others?

A[6] Whether, for each single mortal sin?
