PRAYER TO THE MOST PRECIOUS BLOOD OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST
(ST. CATHERINE OF SIENA).
Ocean of Divine Mercy:
Flow upon us.
Most pure Offering:
Procure us every Grace!
Hope and Refuge of sinners:
Atone for us!
Delight of holy souls:
Draw us! Amen.
O sweet Jesus, my Love, to strengthen my soul and to rescue it from the weakness into which it has fallen, You have built a wall around it, and have mixed the mortar with Your blood, confirming my soul and uniting it to the sweet will and charity of God!
Just as lime mixed with water is placed between stones to cement them together, so You, O God, have placed between Your creature and Yourself, the Blood of Your only-begotten Son, cemented with the divine lime of the fire of ardent charity, in such a way that there is no Blood without fire, nor fire without Blood.
Your Blood was shed, O Christ, by the fire of love! Amen.
Saint Gertrude the Great’s prayer
for the Conversion of Sinners
I offer Thee the Most Precious Blood
of Thy Divine Son, Jesus Christ,
in union with the masses
said throughout the world today,
for all the blessed souls in Purgatory,
for sinners everywhere,
for sinners in the universal church,
those in my own home
and within my family.
Saint Albert the Great’s prayer
to the Most Precious Blood
I adore You, O Precious Blood of Jesus, flower of creation, fruit of virginity, ineffable instrument of the Holy Spirit, and I rejoice at the thought that You came from the drop of virginal blood on which eternal Love impressed its movement; You were assumed by the Word and deified in His person. I am overcome with emotion when I think of Your passing from the Blessed Virgin’s heart into the heart of the Word and, being vivified by the breath of the Divinity, becoming adorable because You became the Blood of God.
I adore You enclosed in the veins of Jesus, preserved in His humanity like the manna in the golden urn, the memorial of the eternal Redemption which He accomplished during the days of His earthly life.
I adore You, Blood of the new, eternal Testament, flowing from the veins of Jesus in Gethsemane, from His flesh torn by scourges in the Praetorium, from His pierced hands and feet and from His opened side on Golgotha.
I adore You in the Sacraments, in the Eucharist, where I know You are substantially present.
I place my trust in You, O adorable Blood, our Redemption, our regeneration. Fall, drop by drop, into the hearts that have wandered from You and soften their hardness.
O adorable Blood of Jesus, wash our stains, save us from the anger of the avenging angel. Irrigate the Church; make her fruitful with Apostles and miracle-workers, enrich her with souls that are holy, pure and radiant with divine beauty. Amen
