DAY TWO – NOVENA of DEVOTION to the PRECIOUS BLOOD of JESUS
Opening Prayer for each Day:
Grant me the grace to know You, to love You
and to be truly sorry that I have offended You.
I ask this grace by Your Precious Blood –
By that Precious Blood, which bathed Your Sacred Body
and trickled down to the ground in the Garden of Olives.
By that Precious Blood, which poured forth
from Your Sacred Body during the scourging.
By that Precious Blood, which covered
Your Sacred Face when You were Crowned with Thorns.
By that Precious Blood, which burst
from Your hands and feet on Calvary.
By that Precious Blood, which came forth from Your Sacred Heart
after Your death.
By that Precious Blood, which we drink
in Holy Communion and of which You said:
“He who feeds on My Flesh
and drinks My Blood has life eternal.“
Day Two: Jesus Sheds Blood in the Circumcision
Eternal Father, we offer You the Precious Blood of Jesus
shed in the circumcision.
In the fullness of time,
You sent Your only Son,
born of a woman, born under the Law.
Help us to live in our lives
the true spirit of laws.
In Baptism we have become Your children,
the new people of God.
Preserve in us, Your strength,
to live with faith, hope and charity.
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Our Father …
Glory be …
V. Praise and thanksgiving be evermore to Jesus.
R. Who by His Blood has saved us.
V. Glory to the Blood of Jesus!
R. Now and forever. Amen
