of IGNATIUS, SOLDIER SAINT
Founder of the Jesuit Order
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,
Good Jesus, hear me.
Within your wounds, hide me,
Faithful to You, keep me
From the evil one, protect me.
At the hour of my death, call me,
Into your presence lead me
to praise you with all your saints
Forever and ever.
Lord, and receive, all my liberty,
my memory, my understanding
and my entire will,
All that I am and all that I possess.
You have given all to me.
To You, Lord, I return it now.
Everything is Yours.
I surrender it all to You
to be disposed of according to Your will.
Give me only Your love and Your grace.
With these I will be rich enough,
and will desire nothing more.
teach me to be generous.
Teach me to serve you as you deserve;
to give and not to count the cost,
to fight and not to heed the wounds,
to toil and not to seek for rest,
to labor and not to ask for reward,
save that of knowing that I do Your will.
