The Precious Blood of Jesus

Today is the feast of the Precious Blood of Jesus, although in the USA it's not officially celebrated yet (because the new translation of the sacramentary is not yet ready.)

Here is a wonderful thought from St Clement, Bishop of Rome near the end of the first century, from his letter to the Corinthians:

"Let us fix our attention on the blood of Christ and recognize how precious it is to God his Father, since it was shed for our salvation and brought the grace of repentance to the whole world."

And from the first letter of John: "The blood of his son Jesus cleanses us from all sin."
