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.

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.
