Miscellaneous prayers and invocations, continued.

Prayer, Gracias tibi ago, continued.



The author commends himself to the love which Christ preached throughout the world, to the virtue of his passion, and to his profound mercy. He asks Christ, through his mercy and boundless piety, to make him hate all the evil that stains his soul; to make him mindful of Christ's death by bearing Christ's wounds in himself, that so he may be found worthy to be with Christ; to save him from the misery of hell so that he may rejoice with Christ forever; and to protect his soul, redeemed with Christ's own blood.
