基督的至尊寶血 Precious Blood

基督的至尊寶血

隨著復活節節日、慶日及五旬節的結束,緊接的是紀念主耶穌基督寶血。

起源

教宗庇護九世曾於一八四九年八月十日頒定七月份第一主日為基督的至尊寶血節日。但於一九六九年從羅馬天主教禮儀年曆中省略,因為贖世者的寶血已彰顯在其他重要的節日禮儀中。

傳統

按天主教傳統,我們將整個七月份奉獻于主耶穌基督寶血。因基督的寶血,整個人類獲得救贖;藉基督的寶血,洗滴我們的罪汚。從新約中,基督自我犧牲所流出的寶血比舊約中牛犢之血更為尊貴。(路加福音二十二20;出谷紀二十四8)

教宗聖若望二十三世著寫有關基督寶血的資料

教宗聖若望二十三世在1960年羅馬宗教大會閉幕式上強調 : “因耶穌的聲音和寶血呼求憐憫和慈悲,世界仍可以納入正軌。寶血的奉獻,就是我們在時間上的奉獻,為所有普世靈魂的奉獻。” [中文意譯] 教宗聖若望二十三世引証了如果沒有天主的慈悲,這世界將不能存在。

但如果我們在光中行走, 如同衪在光中一樣, 我們就彼此相通, 衪聖子耶穌的血就會洗淨我們的各種罪過。

(羅馬書三25)

這耶穌即是天主公開立定, 使衪以自己的血, 為信仰衪的人作贖罪祭的; 如此, 天主顯示了自己的正義, 因為以前他因寬容放過了人的罪。

現在, 我們既因衪的血而成義, 我們更要藉著衪脱免天主的義怒。

耶穌,我信賴你!

 

 


The Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ

by Sally.ofs

 

Followed by the feast days and solemnity days of Easter Season and Pentecost Sunday is the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Origin

On 10 August, 1849, Pope Pius IX officially included the feast of the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the General Roman Calendar for celebration on the first Sunday in July, the first Sunday after 30 June. [1]

The feast was removed from the General Roman Calendar in 1969, "because the Most Precious Blood of Christ the Redeemer is already venerated in the solemnities of the Passion, of Corpus Christi and of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and in the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. But the Mass of the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ is placed among the votive Masses". [2]

In Roman Missal 7, the color red is used in the Mass, a priest professes the Prayer over the Offerings: “As we offer our oblation to your majesty, O Lord, may we draw near in these mysteries to Jesus, the Mediator of the New Covenant, and celebrate anew the sprinkling of his Blood, in which lies all our salvation. Through Christ our Lord.”

Tradition

In Catholic belief, the month of July is dedicated to the Precious Blood of Jesus.  Through the Precious Blood, the whole humankind has been redeemed; by the Precious Blood, cleanses us from all sin.  The self-sacrifice of the Covenant of the Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the New Testament was far more precious than the Blood of the Bull in the Old Testament. (cf Luke22:20; Exodus 24:8)

Related writing from Pope St. John XXIII on Precious Blood

Pope St. John XXIII in his closing address to the Roman Synod of 1960 stated, “The world can still set itself right and always will be able to, because of voice and Blood of Christ cry out for pity and mercy.  Devotion to the Precious Blood is the devotion of our time.  It is devotion for all souls, for the whole world.” [3] This quote means the world is deeply wounded.  The world would not exist without God’s mercy. [4]

Scriptures on Precious Blood

“In him we have redemption by his blood, the forgiveness of transgressions, in accord with the riches of his grace” (Ephesians 1:7 NABRE)

“But if we walk in the light as he is in the light, then we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of his Son Jesus cleanses us from all sin.” (1 John 1:7 NABRE)

“realizing that you were ransomed from your futile conduct, handed on by your ancestors, not with perishable things like silver or gold but with the precious blood of Christ as of a spotless unblemished lamb.” (1 Peter 1:18-19 NABRE)

“whom God set forth as an expiation, through faith, by his blood, to prove his righteousness because of the forgiveness of sins previously committed” (Romans 3:25 NABRE)

“How much more then, since we are not justified by his blood, will we be saved through him from the wrath.” (Romans 5:9 NABRE)

“Therefore, Jesus also suffered outside the gate, to consecrate the people by his own blood.” (Hebrews 13:12 NABRE)

Various prayer on Precious Blood

When blessing yourself with Holy Water: “By this Holy Water and by Your Precious Blood, Lord Jesus, wash away all my sins.”

When entering or leaving your house: “Precious Blood of Jesus, shed on the Cross for us, bless this house.  Take it under Thy protection.”

“O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a Fount of Mercy for us, I trust in You.” (St. Faustina, Diary 187)

Jesus, I Trust in You.
