How to Pray the Anima Christi

The Anima Christi is a prayer from around the 14th century. It is used after receiving the body and blood of Our Lord, Jesus Christ in Holy Communion.

How to pray the Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, sanctify me,

Body of Christ, save me,

Blood of Christ, inebriate me,

Water from Christís 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. Amen.
