Feast Of The Precious Blood 2019
Devotion to the Precious Blood of Our Lord is based on the doctrine of the Incarnation whereby we know that all components of His Sacred Humanity belong to the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity and are thereby worthy of divine adoration and love.  God prepared us for His shedding of this price of our redemption by many examples in the Old Testament, beginning with Abel and being seen more dramatically in the blood of the Passover lambs.  The origins of the modern feast celebrating this come from the days of Pope Pius IX.  He instituted the feast in thanksgiving for the saving of Rome from its enemies in 1849.  The qualities of His Blood are seen in Its Litany.  Our spiritual life will be strengthened by our daily practice of devotion to the Precious Blood.
