A journal dedicated to the life and mission of St. Gaspar del Bufalo, and to a life lived in response to the call and the cry of the Most Precious Blood of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Our on-going mission is to share good news of hope and communion.

July 1st

The Solemnity of the Most Precious Blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Feast was celebrated today at the one of the stational churches here in Rome, St. Anastasia. One of the Roman bishops, whose name I have forgotten now, gave a rather animated homily in Italian. The Missionaries of the Precious Blood accepted the pastor of the Parish as an auxilary missionary and presented him with a mission cross. A Rather large cross was presented as part of the Presentation of Gifts and after communion it was announced that it would be a traveling mission cross that would go from village to village to celebrate this year of the canonization of St. Maria de Mattias. It was given first to the ASC superior in Acuto and it would first visit the village of Acuto where Maria began her work.

May you all know the gift of his most Precious Blood, and may we never take this gift for granted.

from Roma...
