"This is My blood of the covenant,
which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins."
Matthew 26: 28
O Almighty and Eternal God, You willed that the world should be redeemed and the sins of man atoned for by the shedding of the Blood of Your Only-Begotten Son. May we on this solemn feast pay fitting honor to the Precious Blood that was the price of our salvation; may that Blood defend us against the evils of our present life so that we may enjoy its everlasting fruit in heaven.
Collect from The Feast of the Precious Blood
Glory Be to Jesus
