Prayer of thanksgiving for Jesus’ Precious Blood

Eucharistie

Pascal Deloche | GoDong

Philip Kosloski - published on 07/01/22

Pope Benedict XVI recited this prayer during a general audience in July, a month traditionally dedicated to the Precious Blood of Jesus.

In 2009, Pope Benedict XVI explained in his general audience that, “The first Sunday of July was formerly marked by the devotion to the Most Precious Blood of Christ.”

He thought it was a beautiful devotion, one that highlights the positive answer Jesus has to all the blood that is shed in this world, a blood that saves us and redeems us.

Here is a short prayer he prayed in thanksgiving for Jesus’ sacrifice and the gift of his Precious Blood.

Every human being, even in conditions of extreme moral wretchedness can say, fixing his eyes on the wounds of the Crucified One: “God has not abandoned me, he loves me, he has given his life for me,” and thus rediscover hope.

May the Virgin Mary, who at the foot of the Cross together with the Apostle John received the testament of Jesus’ Blood, help us to rediscover the inestimable richness of this grace and to feel deep and everlasting gratitude for it.
