DAY FOUR – 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 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 Four : Jesus Sheds Blood in the Scourging
we offer You the Nost Precious Blood of Jesus
shed in the violent and bloody Scourging.
Accept it in recompense, for the loss of so
much innocent blood in the world.
We ask for justice and peace.
We understand that Your loving Son’s
offered His life in total obedience
and that each stroke that He received from the whips
was an act of sacrifice and of love
for the redemption of the world.
Father of mercy,
may Your mercy never abandon us.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Our Father …
Glory be …
V. Praise and thanksgiving be evermore to Jesus.
R. Who with his blood has saved us.
V. Glory to the Blood of Jesus!
R. Now and forever. Amen
