Live Stream Mass 

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, embolden me.
Water from the side of Christ, wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O good Jesus, hear me.
Within your wounds hide me.
Never permit me to be parted from you.
From the evil Enemy defend me.
At the hour of my death call me
and bid me come to you,
that with your Saints I may praise you
for age upon age.
My Jesus,
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. 
I love You above all things, 
and I desire to receive You into my soul. 
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, 
come at least spiritually into my heart. 
I embrace You as if You were already there 
and unite myself wholly to You. 
Never permit me to be separated from You.

*Catechesis on the “Anima Christi” Prayer

The Anima Christi (Soul of Christ) prayer is a powerful and moving prayer that has been attributed to St. Ignatius of Loyola (1491-1556) - the founder of the Jesuits. It is a prayer that can lead us into an immediate union with Christ. The Anima Christi prayer predates Ignatius by as much as a century-and-a-half. However, Ignatius was known to be very fond of this prayer, and it often served as the opening prayer of his Spiritual Exercises.

The Anima Christi prayer is a sublime prayer that transcends all time and all centuries. It is our hope that on our Lenten journey, this prayer can touch us as a family of faith on a profound level and lead us into a deeper relationship and union with Christ.

During Covid, we prayed the beautiful prayer for Spiritual Communion after receiving the Eucharist, to invite (and unite ourselves) with our live streaming congregation. Now that the pandemic is over, we replace the Spiritual Communion with the “Anima Christi”; it is time for us to once again gather around the Table of the Lord as one, and while we have the blessing of receiving the Lord in the Eucharist, we also pray as a family community to unite us in Jesus Christ - in His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.
