Invocations to the Precious Blood of Jesus

Precious Blood of Jesus, shed in the circumcision, make me chaste of mind, heart, and body.

Precious Blood, oozing in the agony of Jesus, from every pore, grant me to love above all things the holy and adorable will of God.

Precious Blood, flowing abundantly in the scourging at the pillar, inspire me with a keen sorrow for my sins and a love of suffering.

Precious Blood, falling in profusion from the crown of thorns, grant me a love of humiliation.

Precious Blood, furrowing the way to Calvary, fill me with courage to walk unfalteringly in the bloody footsteps of Jesus.

Precious Blood, shed so profusely in the Crucifixion of my Jesus, make me die entirely to self-love.

Precious Blood, shed to the very last drop by the opening of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, give me that generous love that sacrifices all for God.

Precious Blood, sacred source from which all graces flow, apply Your infinite merits to my soul.

Precious Blood, whose virtue animates and enlivens our actions, apply Your infinite merits to all our works.

Life-giving fountain, in which the soul fully quenches its thirst, saturate me with pure love.

O Divine Blood of my Jesus, I adore You from the depths of my heart.

I fervently invoke You, for You are my salvation and by You I hope to obtain the joys of paradise.

Eternal Father, be merciful, for the sake of the Blood of Your only Son; we plead You, show us Your mercy.

Most Precious Blood of Jesus, cry for mercy for us to the Heavenly Father, and deliver us.

Eternal Father, I offer You the Precious Blood of Jesus, in reparation for my sins and the needs of the universal Church.
Amen.
