    Consecrating the Drops of Blood which Our Lord Jesus lost on His way to Calvary

    Copy of a letter found in the Holy Sepulchre of Our Lord Jesus Christ in Jerusalem, preserved in a silver box by His Holiness.

    Copy of a letter of the Oration found in the Holy Sepulchre of Our Lord Jesus Christ in Jerusalem, preserved in a silver box by His Holiness and by the Emporers and Empresses of the Christian Faith.

    St. Elizabeth, Queen of Hungary, with St. Matilda and St. Bridget, wishing to know something of the Passion of Jesus Christ, offered fervent and special prayers, upon which there appeared to them Our Lord Jesus Christ who spoke to them in the following manner:
    I descended from Heaven to the Earth in order to convert you.

    In olden times, people were religious, and their harvests were abundant; at present, on the contrary, they are scanty.

    If you want to reap an abundant harvest you must not work on Sunday, for Sunday you must go to Church and pray to God to forgive your sins. He gave you six days in which to work and one for rest and devotion and to tender your help to the poor and assist the Church.

    Those people who brawl against My Religion and cast slurs on this Sacred Letter will be forsaken by Me.

    On the contrary, those people who shall carry a copy of this letter with them shall be free from death by drowning and from sudden death. They shall be free from all contagious diseases and lightning; they shall not die without confession, and shall be free from their enemies and from the hand of wrongful authority, and from all their slanderers and false witnesses.

    Women in peril at child-birth will, by keeping this Oration about them, immediately overcome the difficulty. In the houses where this Oration is kept, no evil thing will ever happen: and forty days before the death of a person who has this Oration about him or her, the Blessed Virgin will appear to him or her. So said St. Gregorious.

    To all those faithful who shall recite for three years, each day, 2 Paters, Glorias, and Aves, in honor of the drops of blood I lost, I will concede the following five graces:

        1st  The plenary indulgence and remission of your sins.

        2nd  You will be free from the pains of Purgatory.

        3rd  If you should die before completing the said 3 years, for you it will be the same as if you had completed them.

        4th  It will be upon your death the same as if you had shed all your blood for the Holy Faith.

        5th  I will descend from Heaven to take your soul and that of your relatives, until the fourth generation.

    Be it known that the number of armed soldiers were 150; those who trailed me while I was bound were 23. The number of executioners of justice were 83; the blows received on my head were 150; those on my stomach, 108; kicks on my shoulders, 80. I was led, bound with cords by the hair, 24 times; spits in the face were 180; I was beaten on the body 6666 times; beaten on the head, 110 times. I was roughly pushed, and at 12 o'clock was lifted up by the hair; pricked with thorns and pulled by the beard 23 times; received 20 wounds on the head; thorns of marine junks, 72; pricks of thorns in the head, 110; mortal thorns in the forhead, 3. I was afterwards flogged and dressed as a mocked king; wounds in the body, 1000. The soldiers who led me to the Calvary were 608; those who watched me were 3, and those who mocked me were 1008; the drops of blood which I lost were 28,430.

    Benedetta DA S.S.; Pope Leo XIII, in Roma 5 Aprile 1890

    I never heard about this letter.  Is it legit as private revelation or something?

  • Campy, the webmaster of that site considers him/herself to be a Traditional Roman Catholic in perfect standing with Holy Mother Church.  You can read that at the bottom of the Home page.  That should be a dead give away to the probability that the letter isn't real.

  • There are other sites with the same letter.
    This one includes miracles associated with the letter.

    I would imagine it is indeed a legitimate private revelation although I too have never seen it before.

    I don't personally agree with Mr. Hobson's (webmaster for the site Campy posted) position on traditional Catholicism--primarily because he believes the SSPX to be schismatic--but that doesn't mean his websites are worthless. I'll have to look more at them later, but I don't see anything wrong with them at the moment.
    "If I could only make the faithful sing the Kyrie, the Gloria, the Credo, the Sanctus and the Agnus Dei ... that would be to me the finest triumph sacred music could have, for it is in really taking part in the liturgy that the faithful will preserve their devotion. I would take the Tantum ...

  • I remember Fr. Iscara wasn't too keen on things like this.

    I actually saw him throw away a stack of the letter above. Perhaps because it's a textbook example of piety with no basis in doctrine?

    It's true, that some people might think that the Faith is a sort of talisman (carry around this letter) and as long as they say a few prayers, they're saved (forget about priests, sacraments, confession, living a virtuous life).

    I think that's why Fr. Iscara is angry about things like the above.

  • Our Lady of the Rosary Library has made a card of this letter. They apparently believe the letter to be authentic.
