July 1 is the feast of the Precious Blood. Established by Pope Pius IX, it was taken off the calendar after Vatican II. The new edition of the sacramentary has it again, but the revised missal will not go into effect in the USA until the translation is approved.
This day is special to me because it is the anniversary of my first profession of vows (26 years).
"The blood of his Son Jesus cleanses us from all sin" (1 Jn 1:7).
