A prayer of Ignatius

While reviewing the spiritual exercises of Ignatius Loyola I ran across this Jesus-focused prayer that Ignatius recommends often during the exercises.

Soul of Christ, make me holy

Body of Christ, redeem me

Blood of Christ, inebriate me

Water from Christ’s side, cleanse me

Passion of Christ, make me strong

O Good Jesus, hear me

Hide me in your wounds

Never let me depart from you

Defend me from the evil enemy

Call me at the hour of my death

Bid me to come to you

That with your saints I may praise you

Forever and ever.  Amen.

  2. Margaret, I had never visited before, but did today and found it refreshing. I just prayed the prayer for today. Thanks for sharing!
