The JOY of the Church...

You know that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your fathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the Precious Blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot. - I Peter 1:18-19

"Preach often on the power of the Precious Blood 
received in Holy Communion.  
Tell souls that the Most Precious Blood of Jesus is ...

·   the price of our redemption,
·   the salvation of the world,
·   the glory of the Holy Sacrifice,
·   the vesture of Christ's priesthood,
·   the beauty of His altar,
·   the splendour of His saints,
·   the defeat of Satan,
·   the reconciliation of sinners,
·   the healing of those wounded by the evil serpent,
·   the shining purity of priests,
·   the life of those who follow the Lamb,
·   the peace of the troubled,
·   the remedy for every ill,
·   the soul's desire,
·   the astonishment of the angels,
·   and the joy of the Church."
