Hand Crafted "One of a Kind" , Limited Edition
and Custom Rosaries and Chaplets
Anima Christi is the Latin term for
"soul of Christ."
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 Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Suffer me not to be separated from Thee
From the malignant enemy defend me
In the hour of my death call me
And bid me come unto Thee
That I may praise Thee
Forever and ever
Anima Christi is usually prayed after receiving Communion. I, personally, am very drawn to it and pray it various times
during the day. I find it enriching, as its plea offers a sense of protection and hope. Each line is a prayer in and of itself and when all lines are put together, the prayer becomes a complete devotion to every aspect of the suffering of Christ.
This rosary is dedicated to “the soul of Christ” with hope that, as we pray it, we may find ourselves in the saving grace of His blood.
I could not imagine this rosary in any color other than red. Representing his blood, beads are scarlet red Czech glass. Symbolizing the nails that were pounded through His hands and feet, the red is accented with silver. A Sacred Heart pictorial center and red enamel crucifix complete this limited edition rosary which measures 22’.
Your Anima Christi rosary will be shipped in a fabric pouch and gift box.

Many believe this prayer was written by Saint Ignatius Loyola but it was not. Saint Ignatius Loyola placed the prayer at the beginning of his “Spiritual Exercises” and often quoted it but it was, in fact, written either before his birth or during his early childhood. Although its authorship is uncertain, most possibilities point to Pope John XXII because, in the year 1330, he deepened it’s sacredness by adding indulgences.
"You come to me and unite Yourself intimately to me under the form of nourishment. Your Blood now runs in mine, Your Soul, Incarnate God, permeates mine, giving courage and support. What miracles! Who would have ever imagined such!"
