Ignatius Loyola


Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, sanctify me. Body of Christ, save me. Water from the side of Christ, wash me. Passion of Christ, strengthen me. Good Jesus, hear me. Within the 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. 


- St. Ignatius Loyola (1491- 1556)
