Devotion to the Precious Blood of Jesus

Traditionally, July is dedicated to honoring the Precious Blood of Jesus. It’s a devotion I knew nothing about until a few years ago. While we were visiting the Holy Spirit Monastery in Conyers, GA one day, my husband picked up this book. The book contains some beautiful prayers and it got me wanting to learn more about the devotion to the Precious Blood.

During my search, I discovered what the Church teaches about the devotion to the Precious Blood and I learned a little about the history of this devotion. I also found information here and here about the devotion and discovered that there’s even an association dedicated to the Precious Blood.

Additionally, I came across this website that has suggestions for activities for the Precious Blood. There are a lot of options available on the site; however, as I always do, I plan to keep it simple. My plan consists of making an effort to go to daily Mass more often, praying the Litany of the Most Precious Blood twice a week, and maybe a craft or two.

In spite of all the summer traveling that often goes on during July, I encourage you do something to honor Our Lord and the suffering He endured for our salvation – no matter how small. For more information and resources go here, or here, or here.

Of course, as always, I also invite you to share your activities we us. Leave a link in the comments!
