Powerful, protective, precious Blood

On one occasion St Peter Damian wrote to a young nephew:

“If I may speak figuratively, drive out the roaring
beasts from your domain; do not cease from protecting
yourself daily by receiving the Flesh and Blood of the Lord.  Let your secret foe see your lips reddened with
the Blood of Christ.  He will shudder, cower back,
and flee to his dark, dank retreat.”

St Peter Damian
Reformer, Cardinal
Doctor of the Church
Italy ~ 1007-1072
  “Do not prefer anything to the love of Christ.”
FEAST DAY - February 21


St Peter Damian, ora pro nobis!
