Prayer in Honor of the Precious Blood
O Precious Blood of Jesus, infinite Price of our redemption and both the drink and laver of our souls, You continually plead the cause of all people before the throne of Infinite Mercy. From the depths of my heart I adore You. Jesus, insofar as I am able I want to make reparation for the insults and outrages which You receive from human beings, especially from those who blaspheme You and deny Your presence. Who would not venerate the Blood of infinite value?! Who does not feel inflamed with love for the Jesus Who shed it? What would have become of me had I not been redeemed by this Divine Blood? Who has drained it all from the veins of my Savior? Surely this was the work of Love! O Infinite Love, which has given us this saving Balm! O Balm beyond all price, welling up from the foundation of Infinite Love! Grant that every heart and every tongue may render You praise and thanks, now and forever! Amen.
His blood shed in the garden of Gethsemane
Beloved Jesus, who, on beholding the sins, the crimes, the ingratitude, the coldness of men, the eternal damnation of so many souls, and the frightful evils of sin, wast by Thy love thrown into a bitter agony, and didst shed Thy precious blood so copiously in the garden of Gethsemane; grant me, through this same blood, and for the inﬁnite charity which caused Thee to drink the bitter chalice of Thy Passion, and by the sorrow of Thy most holy mother, when she beheld Thy suffering, oh, grant me, I pray Thee, an unshaken constancy in suffering all things for Thee; be pleased to enlighten the mind of all men, that they may not, by their evil lives, be deprived for all eternity of the beneﬁts of Thy blood and Thy love.
Most Precious Blood of Jesus Christ, shed, in order to obtain mercy for all men, behold us prostrate before Thee; flow upon us abundantly. Behold our heads, our hands, our wills, our understandings, our memories, our thoughts, our affections, our work, our senses, interior and exterior; wash all because all is soiled; purify all because all is corrupt; cure all because all is diseased. Change us by Thy adorable virtue that we may unite ourselves to Thee, O infinite Purity! Purify us, adorn us, save us, and crown us. Amen.
