Going and Taking the Precious Blood
The Sacrament of Confession

My beloved, a heart­felt wel­co­me to today’s Sacri­fice of the Mass on Sunday on the feast of the Pre­cious Blood.

At the Last Sup­per, JESUS said the words of Con­se­cra­ti­on: „This  is My Body, which will be given up for you. … As often as you shall do the­se things, you shall do them for per­pe­tu­al rene­wal!“ That  is the cor­rect … more
