Anima Christi *
The Anima Christi - Latin for “Soul of Christ”- is a centuries-old Catholic prayer, a beloved prayer embraced by generations of the faithful in their desire to grow closer to Christ. The author remains a mystery but it was showing up in prayer books as early as the 14th century. Then St. Ignatius of Loyola (who founded the Jesuits in the 16th century) was so deeply moved by the Anima Christi that he featured it in his classic work Spiritual Exercises, bringing it to even more people.
Our Anima Christi Prayer Pillowcase makes it easy to learn (and remember to pray) this prayer. Printed alongside our original, uplifting portrait of Jesus it invites all Catholics, young and old, to go to our Heavenly Father for the strength and guidance we need, day-by-day.
A Personalized Anima Christi Prayer Pillowcase makes a wonderful devotional gift!
The Anima Christi:
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.
O Good Jesus, hear me.
Within Your wounds hide me.
Separated from You, let me never be.
From the evil one protect me.
At the hour of my death, call me.
And close to You bid me,
that with all Your saints
I may be praising you forever and ever. Amen
