Message to Readers by Rev Fr Rohan Lobo 

Dear Readers,

The month of July is dedicated to the Precious Blood. The feast of the Precious Blood of our Lord was instituted in 1849 by the Pope Pius IX, 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 Precious Blood which we worship is the Blood which the Saviour shed for us on Calvary and reassumed at His glorious Resurrection; it is the Blood which courses through the veins of His risen, glorified, living body at the right hand of God the Father in heaven; it is the Blood made present on our altars by the words of Consecration; it is the Blood which merited sanctifying grace for us and through it washes and beautifies our soul and inaugurates the beginning of eternal life in it."

Devotion to the Precious Blood is not a spiritual option, it is a spiritual obligation, and that not only for priests, but for every follower of Christ must follow.

Devotion, as we know, is a combination of three elements: first- veneration, secondly- invocation, and thirdly- imitation. So through this Devotion to the Precious Blood let us receive heavenly graces and blessings on us and on our families too. Let us pray like St. Catherine of Siena

 

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.
