The Alma De Cristo - Latin for “Soul of Christ”- is a much loved, centuries-old Catholic prayer. It's been embraced by many 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 prayer that he featured it in his classic work Spiritual Exercises, making it even more popular.

The Alma De Cristo:
Alma de Critso, santifícame.
Cuerpo de Cristo, sálvame.
Sangre de Cristo, embriágame.
Agua del costado de Cristo, lávame.
Pasión de Cristo, confórtame.
Oh buen Jesús, óyeme.
Dentro de Tus llagas, escóndeme.
No permitas que me aparte de Ti.
Del maligno enemigo, defiéndeme.
En la hora de mi muerte, llámame
Y mándame ir a Ti, para que con
Tus santos Te alabe, por los siglos de los siglos. Amén
