"Draws you deeper into the mystical experience of the Soul of Christ." (Dr. Mary Amore)
About this Book:
The Anima Christi, or Soul of Christ, has been prayed by Christians since the fourteenth century. Commonly prayed after receiving the Blessed Sacrament, it has a rich history and an abundance of meaning. Sister Marie Paul Curley, FSP, delves into both as she reflects on the prayer, the Eucharistic imagery within, and its application for every Catholic.
Every line of the prayer is full of import and meaning. Sister Marie Paul reflects on each line of the prayer in individual chapters, helping you to search deeper within the simple words. Each chapter contains a section that could be used as a guided holy hour for an individual or a group, or just read as further reflection.
With practical applications, thoughtful meditations, and centuries' worth of tradition, Soul of Christ: Meditations on a Timeless Prayer is designed to bring you closer to Christ. Explore the richness of this ancient treasure of the Catholic Church, and join the communion of saints in praising the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Christ through the Anima Christi.
