CREDO: A New Evangelization Witness By Fr. Bob Schreiner July: Devotion to the Precious Blood of Jesus continued…

Here is an excerpt from a retreat conference given in 1987 by the famed Fr. John Hardon on the topic of Devotion to the Precious Blood of Jesus:

―Devotion to the Precious Blood is not a spiritual option, it is a spiritual obli-gation, and that not only for priests, but for every follower of Christ. I really be-lieve, and I hesitate even saying this, but I really believe that one of the symptoms of modern society (and I would even include, sadly, modern Catholic society) one of the symptoms of a growing, gnawing secularism is the lessening and the weakening of devotion to the Precious Blood. Devotion, as we know, is a composite of three elements: It is first- veneration, it is secondly- invocation, and it is thirdly- imitation. In other words, devotion to the Precious Blood of Christ, the Lamb of God who was slain, is first of all to be veneration on our part, which is a composite of knowledge, love and adoration. We are to study to come to a deeper understanding of what those two - I am afraid for many people - casual words, Precious Blood, really mean.

I found this passage in the oldest document, outside of sacred scripture, from the first century of the Christian era - to be exact, from Pope St. Clement I, dated about 96 A.D. Says Pope Clement: "Let us fix our gaze on the Blood of Christ and realize how truly precious It is, seeing that it was poured out for our salvation and brought the grace of conversion to the whole world."

“…come away by yourselves to a lonely place and rest awhile.” MARK 6:31

Do you spend time, every day, alone and in silence listening to how God is calling you? If not, you are missing out on a wonderful opportunity to develop a more personal relationship with Him. Unless we talk and more importantly, listen to God every day, how else will we know how He is calling us? Consider mak-ing a retreat this year, spend some ―alone‖ time with God.

Office will be Closed Mondays & Fridays until Labor Day.

be combined with those from our brothers and sisters around the world to help Pope Francis provide essential relief to people in need. If you missed the collection, it is not too late to give, visit www.usccb.org/nationalcollections, and click on the ―How to Give‖ link.
