Siena bids us fill our memory with thoughts of the Pre cious Blood of Jesus. This the writer has attempted to do in the following pages. Those who thirst for the love of God and for the salvation of souls, yet feel oppressed by the consequences of their sins, and are diffident about the efficacy of their prayers, will find in the devotion to the Blood of our Redeemer a source of consolation and encouragement alto gether too little known and appreciated. The Church elevates the chalice every morning at Mass for our adoration and as a propitiation for our sins, and her liturgical prayers are replete with invocations to the Precious Blood, to awaken our confidence in this Blood of the A tonement. Having therefore, brethren, a confidence in the entering into the holies by the blood of Christ (H eb. X, 19). Our Eucharistic Lord is glorified in the Blessed Sacrament by the devotion to His Divine Blood, trampled under foot in the Passion, but now acclaimed with joy by us, the chosen people of the New Law, as the Price of our Redemp tion. His Blood be upon us and upon our chil dren for the sanctification of our souls! THE AUTHOR. Patronage of St. Francis Xavier March 12, 1914.
