The month of July is dedicated to honoring the Precious Blood of Jesus, the price of our salvation.
Chaplet of the Precious Blood
This devotional chaplet composed of seven Mysteries, meditating upon the seven times in which Jesus Christ for love of us shed blood from His most innocent Body. For the first six mysteries, five Our Fathers and a Glory Be; the last mystery is comprised of only three Our Fathers and a Glory Be; together, the Our Fathers total thirty-three, commemorating the thirty-three years of our Lord's life during which His Precious Blood flowed through His sacred veins before being poured out for our salvation.
Praying the Chaplet: Brief Meditations on the Mysteries
The Second Mystery: The Agony in the Garden
The Fifth Mystery: The Carrying of the Cross
we done anything to remedy this evil? Let us henceforth at least endeavor all we can to save souls by word and by example, making ourselves a pattern to all of good and holy life. Five Our Fathers and a Glory Be.
The Sixth Mystery: The Crucifixion
V. Thou hast redeemed us, O Lord, by Thy Blood.
R. And hast made us a kingdom to our God.
Almighty and Everlasting God, who hast appointed Thine only-begotten Son the Savior of the world, and hast willed to be appeased with His Blood; grant us, we beseech Thee, so to venerate this Blood, the price of our salvation, and so to be defended by its power upon earth from the evils of this present life, that in heaven we may enjoy its everlasting fruit. Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the Unity of the Holy Ghost, world without end. Amen.
