The Feast Of The Precious Blood 2013
The shedding of Our Lord’s Precious Blood is a sublime and essential truth of our Faith. Many clergy and laity have easily fallen away because they did not appreciate this and other truths of God. We fall by degrees and not mortally immediately. We must maintain our fervor and love in this life because it is more important on earth than knowing much. We can only love that for which we have suffered. The history of this feast shows its importance in modern times to overcome the particular dangers that attack Christ and His Mystical Body. The Blood of the Savior redeemed us and is the everlasting token of how much He loves us. We are granted to receive this life giving refreshment whenever we receive Holy Communion.
