As we continue the month of July and honor the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ, I wanted to share this beautiful chaplet from the book, “In Sinu Jesu”. Let us pray for all ordained priests to be washed and fortified in the Precious Blood of Our Savior Jesus Christ. The saints and martyrs remind us of the power of the Precious Blood and as we face the great challenges of the world today we must all seek strength in the Precious Blood poured out for us all.

May all priests pray for each other and may all of us pray as God’s priestly people.


or, Offering of the Precious Blood for Priests

This chaplet of reparation and intercession is meant to be prayed on an

ordinary five decade rosary.

Incline (‡) unto my aid, O God; O Lord, make haste to help me.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit;

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world

without end. Amen.


On the Our Father beads;

Eternal Father, I offer Thee

the Precious Blood of Thy Beloved Son,

our Lord Jesus Christ,

the Lamb without blemish or spot,

in reparation for my sins

and for the sins of all Thy priests.

On the Hail Mary beads:

By Thy Precious Blood, O Jesus,

purify and sanctify Thy priests.

In place of the Glory be to the Father:

O Father, from whom all fatherhood in heaven and on earth

is named,

have mercy on all Thy priests, and wash them in the Blood of

the Lamb.
