July - Month of the Precious Blood
But the ultimate Sacrifice was paid for us by Jesus. The most Precious Blood of Christ was poured out for all of us on the Cross for our sins. He, the unblemished lamb of God was sacrificed for us and endured the most painful death imaginable. Both blood and water gushed forth from His pierced heart at the hour of His death at
3 o'clock, as a fountain of Mercy for us and for the whole world.
“Precious Blood, Ocean of Divine Mercy, flow upon us!
Most Pure offering, procure us every grace!
Hope and refuge of sinners, atone for us!
Delight of the Holy Souls, draw us!
— Saint Catherine of Siena
