    July, the month dedicated to the Most Precious Blood of Jesus
     J.M.J.


    From the Divine Office  
    Matins for July 1 - The Most Precious Blood
    A homily of St. Augustine, Bishop
    Treatise 120 on John

        The Evangelist uses a carefully chosen word. He does not say that the soldier “struck” Christ’s side or “wounded” it or anything else of the kind, but that he “opened” it. This wording gives us a picture of the door of life opening to let the sacraments of the Church flow out, those sacraments without which no one can enter into life which is true life. The outpoured Blood was poured out for the remission of sins. The water is an ingredient of the cup of salvation : it serves both for washing and for drinking. All this was foreshadowed when Noe was commanded to make a door in the side of the ark. This door was to admit the living creatures who were not to perish in the flood: they prefigured the Church. To foreshadow the same mystery, the first woman was made from the side of the man as he slept, and she
    was called Life and Mother of the Living. Thus a great good was prefigured before the great evil of sin. Here the second Adam, bowing His head, slept on the cross, that a wife might be formed for Him out of the water and Blood that flowed from His side as He slept. O death, by which the dead return to life! What is more cleansing than this Blood? What is more health-giving than this wound?

    HYMN AT LAUDS 

        All hail, wounds of Christ, pledges of a measureless love; from you flow endlessly the red streams of His blood.
        You surpass the stars in brilliance, roses and balsam in fragrance, jewels from India in worth and honeycombs in sweetness.
        Through you there lies open for our souls entrance to a welcome refuge, and no angry foe can ever pursue us there with his menaces.
        How many the stripes Jesus received, all naked in Pilate’s hall; how many the drops of blood that His torn skin lets fall all round Him.
        And now a crown of thorns pierces His noble brow, and nails with blunted points bore their way through His hands and feet.

        And after He had breathed His last, all love and sacrifice to the end, His side is pierced by a soldier’s lance, and there gushed forth the two fold stream of water and blood.
        To pay our ransom in full, Jesus is crushed completely in the wine-press and, forgetful only of Himself, is drained of His blood to the very last drop.
        All that are corrupted by sin’s deadly infection, come to these healing streams; for if a man bathe himself at this atoning spring, purity of soul will be his.
        Thanks are due to Him who sits at the Father’s right hand, for He has redeemed us by His blood and strengthens us by the Holy Spirit. Amen.

  • The Chaplet of the Precious Blood 

    This devotion consists of seven mysteries in which we meditate on the seven main sheddings of the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ. 


    The Our Father is said five times after each mystery except for the last, when it is said three times------in all thirty-three times in honor of the thirty-three years of Our Savior's life on earth.

    V. O God, come to my assistance!
    R. Lord, make haste to help me!
    V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost,
    R. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

    FIRST MYSTERY  Jesus shed His Blood in the Circumcision
    Let us ask for chastity of soul and body. 
    Our Father five times, Glory be to the Father once. 

    V. We pray Thee, Lord, help Thy servants! 
    R. Whom Thou hast redeemed with Thy Precious Blood! 

    This invocation to the Precious Blood is said 
    after the Our Father and Glory be of each mystery.

    SECOND MYSTERY  Jesus shed His Blood in the Agony while praying in the Garden of Olives. 
    Let us ask for the spirit of prayer. 


    THIRD MYSTERY Jesus shed His Blood in the Scourging at the Pillar. 
    Let us ask for patience and self control. 


    FOURTH 
    MYSTERY  Jesus shed His Blood in the Crowning with Thorns
    Let us ask for humility to atone for pride. 


    FIFTH 
    MYSTERY  Jesus shed His Blood while carrying His Cross to Calvary. 
    Let us ask for acceptance of our daily crosses. 


    SIXTH 
    MYSTERY  Jesus shed His Blood in the terrible Crucifixion.
     Let us ask for contrition. 


    SEVENTH MYSTERY  Jesus shed Blood and water from His side pierced by the Lance. 
    Let us ask for perseverance.
