Reflection on the month past

July traditionally dedicated to the Most Precious Blood of Jesus.

“Let us fix our eyes on Christ's blood and understand how precious it is to his father, for, poured out for our salvation. It has brought to the whole world the grace of repentance” St. Clement of Rome.

Blood of Christ, price of our salvation, Save us.

When the eight day came and the child was to be circumcised, they gave him the name Jesus, the name the angel had given him before his conception. Lk 2:21

Blood of Christ, price of our salvation, Save us.
