The audiobook is available in various formats at Internet Archive (linked to from CatholicAudioBooks), and has been uploaded to Youtube.
- N.B.: We request advice from readers on the copyright status of this translation from the work of the Saint, as the various links above do not provide the relevant information, including the name of translator. The fact that Ignatian Spirituality links to it seems to indicate that it is now in the public domain, or has been released for public reading; but more conclusive information/advice would be appreciated, and will be immediately acted upon as may be legally and ethically appropriate.
We adore You, oh Christ, and we bless You:
For by Your holy cross You redeemed the world.
