Feast Day of St. Ignatius of LoyolaDoctor of the Church
On this feast of St. Ignatius of Loyola, let us reflect on a beautiful prayer he composed:
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. Permit me not to be separated from Thee. From the wicked foe defend me. At the hour of my death call me. And bid me come to Thee. That with Thy saints I may praise Thee For ever and ever. Amen.
St. Ignatius of Loyola, pray for us.
