Prayer for April - Anima Christi

As we approach a joyful Easter-tide, let us recall all the blessings we have received through Christ’s passion and death, in this lovely, comforting C14th Latin prayer.

Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, refresh me
Water from the side of Christ, wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesu, 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 to Thee
That with thy saints I may praise Thee
For ever and ever. Amen.
