Hopes (next day repost)

(based on Anima Christi by Ignatius Loyola)

Breath of the Spirit, inspire me

Body and Blood of Christ, nurture me

Bounty of the Creator, sustain me

Zealous Christ, strengthen me

Sacrificed Christ, save me

Risen Christ, restore me

Your fiat moves me

Your acceptance assures me

Your perseverance encourages me

Your wounds preserve me.

Help me endure trials and tribulations.

Stay at my side

Hold me close to you

now and at the hour of my death

Bless me with your presence

Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
