July - Month of the Precious Blood

Precious Blood of Jesus falling into a Chalice - World Apostolate of Fatima
Like the Sacred Wounds of Jesus, His Precious Blood deserves special honor because of its close relation to the Sacred Passion.  That honor was given to it from the beginning by the Apostles who praised its redeeming power.  (Roman 5:9:  "we are justified by His blood"; Hebrew 13:12 "and so Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people by His blood, suffered outside the gate"; 1 John 1:7 "and the blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, cleanses us from all sin.")

Offering in Reparation to the Most Precious Blood of Jesus

Prayer of Saint Catherine of Siena to the Precious Blood of Jesus

Precious Blood, Ocean of Divine Mercy: Flow upon us!

Precious Blood, Most pure Offering: Procure us every Grace!

Precious Blood, Hope and Refuge of sinners: Atone for us!

Precious Blood, Delight of holy souls: Draw us! Amen.

Saint Catherine of Siena
