Rousing from insensibility...

“Jesus has given us His Blood even to the last drop.
What is there left to do?  Jesus is a victim.  Behold I am ready,
O my God, to be a victim of love!” – St Gaspar del Bufalo

“In every era the Lord has inspired certain devotions to stem the tide of iniquity. We also see that in times past the Church was attacked in this or that doctrine.

Today the war is being waged against religion as such and against Christ Crucified. We need, therefore, to reemphasize the glories of the Cross and of our Crucified Redeemer, to reopen the fountains of mercy just when the devil would make us the victim of wrath.

Now, more than ever, it is opportune to tell people at what price our souls were redeemed. We must let it be known how the Blood of Christ cleanses the souls and sanctifies them, particularly by means of the sacraments.

We must arouse them from their insensibility by reminding them that His Blood is offered up every morning upon the altars and that instead of blasphemy and insult, we should give it adoration and praise.”

St Gaspar del Bufalo (+1837)
