Anima Christi
By St Ignatius Loyola (1491-1556)

Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from the side of Christ, wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
Good Jesus, hear me
Within Your wounds, shelter me
from turning away, keep me
From the evil one, protect me
At the hour of my death, call me
Into Your presence lead me
to praise You with all Your saints
Forever and ever,

Our Morning Offering – 10 June – Tenth Sunday of the Year B

Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Chirst, inebriate me.
Water from the side of Christ, wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O good Jesus, hear me.
Within Your wounds hide me.
Suffer me not to be separated from You.
From the malicious enemy defend me.
In the hour of my death call me
and bid me come unto You,
that with Your saints I may praise You,
forever and ever.
Amen

This well known Catholic prayer dates to the early fourteenth century and was possibly written by Pope John XXII but its authorship remains uncertain.   The prayer takes its name from its Latin incipit, meaning “Soul of Christ”.   The Anima Christi was popularly believed to have been composed by St Ignatius of Loyola (1491-1556), as he puts it at the beginning of his Spiritual Exercises and often refers to it but it was so well known and so popular at the time of St Ignatius, that in the first edition of his Spiritual Exercises he merely mentions it, evidently supposing that the reader would know it.   In later editions, it was printed in full.   It was by assuming that everything in the book was written by St Ignatius that it came to be looked upon as his composition.anima christi - soul of christ sanctify me - 10 june 2018

The Anima Christi
By St Thomas Aquinas

Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from Christ’s side, wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Suffer me not to be separated from Thee
From the malicious enemy defend me
In the hour of my death call me
And bid me come unto Thee
That I may praise Thee with Thy saints
and with Thy angels
Forever and ever
