We find the idea of the soul as the form giving principle already in the Middle Ages, it is the soul which forms the body and the outer life. So in meditating on the Anima Christi you are meditating on Christ's form. The same idea is to be found in the East. ~Carl Jung, ETH Lecture17th Nov 1939
Anima Christi Prayer The second half of the prayer goes like this: "O Good Jesus, hear me Within Your wounds, hide me Separated from You, let me never be From the evil one, protect me At the hour of my death, call me And close to You, bid me So that with Your Saints, I may be Praising You forever and ever. Amen."
