DAY SIX – 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 Six : Jesus Sheds Blood Carrying the Cross
we offer You the Precious Blood of Jesus
shed on the way to Calvary,
for all those in the world
who suffer the consequences of sin.
Grant them repentance and conversion,
health to the sick
and feed those who suffer from hunger,
free from injustice the persecuted
and ransom the imprisoned,
give salvation to the dying.
Do not forget the work
that You have begun in us,
so that our life is willingly given,
in obedience and sacrifice,
to Your Truth,
Your Service and Your Will.
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
