Very good post, Joseph. Set me right away to thinking of Jean Vanier and Henri Nouwen and that wonderful phrase in the Anima Christi prayer, O good Jesu, hear me; within thy wounds hide me. Thank you for taking me back to all of these.


Thanks for the observation, Susan. I'll have to go look up an Englsh translation & post it. Newman's is the one that comes to my mind; it should be online somewhere & I'll post it for other readers to see (and pray).


Here is the translation I have had for years and I have no idea where it is from. I like it better than Newman's.

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, inebriate me.
Water from the side of Christ, wash me.

Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O good Jesu, hear me.
Within thy wounds, hide me.

Permit me not to be separated from Thee.
From the malignant enemy, defend me.

In the hour of death, call me,
And bid me come to Thee,
That with thy saints I may praise Thee
Forever and ever. Amen.
