Devotion to the Drops of Blood Lost by Our Lord


Devotion to the Drops of Blood 
Lost by our Lord Jesus Christ 
on His Way to Calvary

St. Elizabeth, Queen of Hungary,

with St. Matilda and St. Bridget,

wishing to know something of the Passion of Jesus Christ,

offered fervent and special prayers,

upon which Our Lord revealed to them:

To all the faithful who shall recite for 3 years, each day,

2 "Our Fathers", 2 "Hail Marys" and 2 "Glory Bes",

in honor of the drops of Blood I lost,

I will concede

the following 5 graces:

1st  The plenary indulgence and remittance of your sins.

2nd  You will be free from the pains of Purgatory.

3rd  If you should die before completing the said 3 years, for you it will be the same as if you had completed them.

4th  It will be upon your death the same as if you had shed all your blood for the Holy Faith.

5th  I will descend from Heaven to take your soul and that of your relatives, until the fourth generation.

Blessed by His Holiness Pope Leo XIII in Rome, April 5, 1890.

Please keep this prayer card with others that you say

daily to remind you to recite these prayers.

Please record the date you started:

The thought of saving souls should always be on our mind.

St. John Bosco stated it well:

"There is nothing more holy

in this world than to work for the

good of souls, for whose salvation

Jesus Christ poured out the last

drops of His blood."

St. Vincent de Paul tells us that:

"The Salvation of men and our

own are so great a good that they merit to be obtained at any price."

Sad to say, the great majority

of Catholics put forth little or no

effort in promoting the greater

honor and glory of God and

the salvation of souls. Let us

keep in mind that if we manage

to save one soul, we also ensure the salvation of our own.

The Holy Ghost reveals this to us in the Holy Bible.

(St. James 5:19,20)

This little card gives us a very

easy way to save our own soul

as well as the ones most dear to

us  our family. See other side

for details. You are urged to

supply yourself with a large

quantity of these cards and

to distribute them liberally.

This will be most pleasing

to Our Dear Lord and a great way to store

up treasures in Heaven.
