The Precious Blood of Christ Month

The Feast of the Precious Blood is was established by Pope Pius IX in 1849, and is celebrated each year on the first Sunday of July. Like the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the subject is venerated the entire month. 

These devotions play an important role in the belief in the Incarnation of Jesus Christ. Our Savior is not an abstract being; He is a Man, made by God, just like you and me. It's a pretty incredible thought: Our Christ's Precious Blood or His Sacred Heart.

Here are two prayers for the month of July, reaffirming our believe that our God walked among men.

1. Prayer to the Most Precious Blood

O precious Blood of Jesus, infinite price paid for the redemption of sinful mankind. O Divine Blood, drink and laver of our souls, standing between us and the Father pleading mercy.

With all my heart I adore You, sweet Lord, and offer reparation for the insults, outrages and ingratitude, which You continuously receive from human beings, especially those who dare blaspheme the Divine Blood You shed for us.

Bless this Blood of Infinite value. Bless the fire of Jesus' Love who shed it to the last drop for us. Where would I be if not for this Divine Blood that redeemed me? Indeed, Lord, I have drawn if from You to the last drop. What Love! Thank you for this saving balm!

May every heart, every tongue, now and forever, praise and thank this priceless balm, this saving Blood, this fountain of crimson Mercy welling up from the fountain of infinite love. Amen.
