July is dedicated to the Most Precious Blood of Jesus. Thanks to Anne for coming up with this most beautiful craft in honor of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus today. I could never think of anything so beautiful on my own, so I'm extremely thankful to Anne for sharing so many ideas on her blog. Stop by her blog to get the beautiful tear-shaped prayer and ideas on how to celebrate this great feast through the month of July.
Every morning we will pray the Offering of the Precious Blood for Souls prayer and the children will a "drop of blood" (made out of red paper) in the chalice in reparation for the sins committed against the Precious Blood of Jesus.
Here is the Offering of the Precious Blood for Souls prayer:
O My God, I beg of Thee in union with the Immaculate Heart of Mary, through the merits of the Precious Blood offered Thee in every Mass throughout the world, to grant that this day one mortal sin may be averted, one soul in doubt may be converted to the truth, one soul about to die in sin may receive the grace of repentance a happy death, and the deliverance of that soul in Purgatory which is nearest Heaven. I wish by this offering to console the Heart of Jesus in agony for the souls lost through the teaching of error against the true Church of Christ, Jesus, Our Lord. Amen.
