Blessings by the Franciscan Sisters, t.o.r. of Penance of the Sorrowful Mother

Litany of the Blood of the New Covenant

Father of Mercy, for choosing to wed yourself to our humanity through the Blood of your only begotten Son,

R/ We praise you!

Jesus, Bridegroom of the Church, for the wellspring of salvation which flows from your pierced Heart,

R/ We praise you!

Holy Spirit, for your love poured into our hearts through the Blood of the Lamb,

R/ We praise you!

Father of Mercy, entrusting the world to your merciful love through the Blood of the New Covenant,

R/ Hear us as we pray:

Through the Blood of Christ, offered at the Last Supper,

R/ Have mercy on us.

Through the Blood of Christ which fell upon the earth in the agony,

R/ Have mercy on us.

Through the Blood of Christ shed for us at the scourging,

R/ Have mercy on us.

Through the Blood of Christ which flowed from the crowning with thorns,

R/ Have mercy on us.

Through the Blood of Christ which marked the way of the cross,

R/ Have mercy on us.

Through the Blood of Christ poured out on the cross,

R/ Have mercy on us.

Jesus, for saving us through the Blood and Water which flowed from your Heart,

R/ We trust in you.

O Blood and Water freeing the souls in purgatory,

R/ We trust in you.

O Blood and Water atoning for our sins,

R/ We trust in you.

O Blood and Water delivering us from evil,

R/ We trust in you.

Holy Spirit, Living Water flowing from our Saviour’s Heart, giving birth to the Church and her sacraments,

R/ Sanctify your Church.

Living Water, pouring forth charisms to build up the Body of Christ,

R/ Sanctify your Church.

Living Water, teeming with graces for a virtuous life,

R/ Sanctify your Church.

Living Water, flowing through us to bring your mercy and healing to your people,

R/ Sanctify your Church.

Let us pray:

O Blessed Trinity, you share life with your Bride, the Church, by the gift of the Precious Blood of Christ.

May we find our joy in you who are All Good, Supreme Good and Love Itself!

May our prayers of intercession, reparation, and atonement reach your loving Heart so that all may be saved and made one in the fullness of your Trinitarian life and love in heaven. 

Amen.
