Anima Christi


Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me

Blood of Christ, inebriate me (refresh me)
Water from Christ’s side, wash me

Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Your wounds hide me

Suffer me not to be separated from You
From the malicious enemy defend me
In the hour of my death call me
And bid me come unto You
That I may praise Your with Your saints
and with Your angels
Forever and ever
Amen

This well known Catholic prayer dates to the early fourteenth century and was possibly written by Pope John XXII in the year 1330.

Anima Christi, sanctifica me.
Corpus Christi, salva me.

Sanguis Christi, inebria me.
Aqua lateris Christi, lava me.

Passio Christi, conforta me.
O bone Jesu, exaudi me.
Intra tua vulnera absconde me.

Ne permittas me separari a te.
Ab hoste maligno defende me.
In hora mortis meae voca me.
Et iube me venire ad te,
Ut cum Sanctis tuis laudem te.
In saecula saeculorum.
Amen

(LATIN)

  1. Thomas: Maar dit is ook waar dat mense vol van die Heilige Gees soms daarvan beskuldig is dat hulle te veel gedrink het. Gaan kyk bietjie Handelinge 2:13 en 15.
