The Most Precious Blood Of Our Lord Jesus Christ

The Most Precious Blood Of Our Lord Jesus ChristJuly 1 is the Feast of the Most Precious Blood in the Traditional Liturgical Calendar. July is the month of the Most Precious Blood. This feast was instituted only in 1849, but the devotion is as old as Christianity. The early Fathers say that the Church was born from the pierced side of Christ, and that the Sacraments were brought forth through His Blood. The special beauty of this feast is its centering of our attention directly on the Blood of Christ, a short cut to the heart of revelation.

The Blood of Christ purchased our salvation and pleads for us before the throne of God, yet it is little understood or appreciated.  In these days we need to think of the Passion of Christ; we do not know how God is going to test us. Devotion to the Precious Blood is a fundamental, sane approach to God. It is hard and painful; it will help us to steel our own hearts against weakness.

His blood redeems us. There was a price against us that we could not pay, but the blood of Jesus redeemed us. First Peter 1:18-19 says, “For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.”

His blood brings us into fellowship with God. According to Ephesians 2:13, “But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ.” Without the blood of Christ, man is a long way from God.

His blood makes peace with God. Man, by nature, is at war with God; and we can only come to God on His peace terms—the blood atonement. The Bible says in Colossians 1:20, “And, having made peace through the blood of His cross, by Him to reconcile all things unto Himself …”

His blood cleanses. Not only does it remove the punishment of sin, it removes the pollution. I don’t care what sin you’ve committed; “the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin (1 John 1:7).

His blood gives power over the devil. It’s the blood that Satan fears. Revelation 12:11 says, “And they overcame him [Satan] by the blood of the Lamb …” The devil doesn’t want you to learn about the blood. He hates it!

PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF THE MOST PRECIOUS BLOOD


Precious Blood Our Lady

O Mary, source of the Precious Blood, you are the guardian of this treasure for which my whole being yearns.  The Blood of Jesus, shed in anguish and shame, the Blood which reconciles and purifies us in your keeping to be dispersed to your children as God wills.

O Mother, give to my intelligence the Blood that heals my infirmities and cancels my iniquities; to my will, the generous Blood which wrought the honor of God by the greatest of immolations.

Give to my heart this spotless Blood which gives rise to holiness; and to every faculty of my mind and every sense and member of my body, the indomitable courage and peace which the Passion and Death of your divine Son purchased for me.  Then shall I be armed for the daily combat, and to Jesus crucified shall be given the trophies of my redemption, and by its merits, bring me, Mother, to sing its praises in eternity. Amen.
