We need Our Lord’s comfort, strength, protection, and guidance as we make our pilgrim way through this world to our heavenly home.
The Anima Christi is frequently prayed after receiving Holy Communion. What a wonderful time to pray it! It gives us a blessed opportunity to pray and reflect on the great Gift we have just received.
“The devotion to the Eucharist is the most noble because it has God as its object; it is the most profitable for salvation, because It gives us the Author of Grace; it is the sweetest, because the Lord is Sweetness Itself” (St. Pius X).
One day St. Teresa of Avila heard someone say: “If only I had lived at the time of Jesus… If only I had seen Jesus… If only I had talked with Jesus…” She responded: “But do we not have in the Eucharist the living, true and real Jesus present before us? Why look for more?”
We invite you to become familiar with the Anima Christi. It’s a beautiful prayer you can pray anywhere, anytime!
