This devotion was printed in our parish bulletin today. It is a wonderful promise from Our Lord that I wanted to share with others who feel moved to begin this.
[font=Fixedsys]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 receite for three years, each day, 2 Our Father’s, 2 Hail Mary’s and 2 Glory Be’s, in honor of the drops of blood I lost, I will concede the following 5 graces:
*]The plenary indulgence and remittance of your sins.
*]You will be free from the pains of purgatory.
*]If you should die before completing the said 3 years, for you it will be the same as if you had completed them.
*]It will be upon your death the same as if you had shed all your blood for the Holy Faith.
*]I will descend from heaven to take your soul and that of your relatives, until the fourth generation.
