July 2020

July is the Month the Church Dedicates to the Most Precious Blood

Jesus to Marie-Julie Jahenny: If the prayer of the rosary and the offering of the Precious Blood were not so agreeable to the Father, there would have had already been on the earth an unnamed misery. But my Mother is interceding with the Father, myself and the Holy Ghost. This is why God is letting Himself be moved. Therefore thank my Mother that mankind is still alive. Honour her with a child’s regard – I had set the example for you – For she’s the Mother of Mercy.

Don’t ever forget to renew continually the offering of the Precious Blood. My Mother is begging me tirelessly and with her many penitent and expiating souls. I can’t refuse her anything. It’s therefore thanks to my Mother and because of my chosen ones that these days will be shortened.

Be consoled, all you who honour my Precious Blood, nothing will happen to you. I will inspire my Representative to honour the sacrifice of my Precious Blood and the reverence of my Mother.


An Indulgence of 100 days, is granted to all the faithful every time they make the following ejaculation.

Eternal Father! I offer Thee the Precious Blood of Jesus in satisfaction for my sins, and for the wants of Holy Church.

An Indulgence of 300 days is granted to all who say this prayer.

Most Precious Blood of life eternal! Price and ransom of the whole universe! Drink and bath of the soul! Ever pleading the cause of man before the throne of heavenly Mercy! I adore thee most profoundly; I would, if I were able, make Thee some compensation for the outrages and wrongs Thou dost ever suffer from men, and especially from those who in their rashness dare to blaspheme Thee. Who will not bless this Blood of value infinite? Who does not feel himself inflamed with the love of Jesus, who shed it all for us? What should I be but for this Blood which hath redeemed me? And who drew Thee out of the veins of my Lord, even unto the last drop? It was Love! O immense love, which gave us this saving balsam! O Balsam beyond all price streaming forth from the fount of immeasurable love! Give to all hearts, all tongues, power to praise, celebrate, and thank Thee now and ever, and throughout all eternity. Amen.
