Drop by drop ...

"I place my trust in You,  O adorable Blood, our Redemption,
our regeneration.  Fall, drop by drop, into the hearts that have
wandered from You and soften their hardness." - St Albert the Great

"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)
"Apostle of the Precious Blood"
