Canticle of the BloodBy Saint Maria de Mattias
Come, let us adore Christ, the Son of God,who has redeemed us with His blood.Clap your hands, all you peoples,sing unto God with a voice of jubilation.For You, God, glorious and mighty,have shown us mercy.You have not spared Your only Sonbut delivered Him up in our behalf.That You might redeem us fromour sins in Christ’s own blood;That justified in the blood of JesusYou might turn Your anger from us;That we who were separated mightbe reconciled through the blood of Christ.O God, my God, what can I renderto You for all the good You have bestowed upon me?I will take the chalice of salvation,and I will call upon the power of Christ’s blood.Sing to Jesus, all you saints, andmake known the memory of His Holiness.For Christ indeed has loved us andwashed us in His blood and hasbecome our helper and redeemer.May Christ be blessed forever whohas wrought such wonders in us.Blessed be Jesus for all ages, andmay the heavens and the earthbe filled with the praises of His love.Come, let us adore Christ, the Sonof God, who has redeemed us with His blood. Amen.
I asked Jesus, "How much do you love me?"
"This much," He said.
And He stretched out His arms, and He died.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His Only Son, that we should not die, but have eternal life!
~ John 3:16
