Devotion to the Precious Drops of Blood

This is a favorite devotion of mine and so I share it here. The devotion to the Precious Drops of Blood lost by our Lord on His way to Calvary …

St. Elizabeth, Queen of Hungary, along with St. Bridget and St. Matilda (also spelled Mechtilde), desired to know more about the Passion of our Lord and so they prayed to that effect. In answer to their prayers our Lord revealed to them the following:

To all the faithful who recite for 3 years, daily, 2 Our Fathers, 2 Hail Marys and 2 Glory Bes, in honor of the Precious Drops of Blood He lost on His way to Calvary, Jesus will concede the following five graces …

#1: The plenary indulgence and remittance of your sins.

#2: You will be free from the pains of Purgatory.

#3: If you should die before completing the said 3 years, for you it will be the same as if you had completed them.

#4: It will be upon your death the same as if you had shed all your blood for the Holy Faith.

#5: I (Jesus) will descend from Heaven to take your soul and that of your relatives, untill the fourth generation.

This devotion was blessed by His Holiness Pope Leo XIII in Rome, April 5, 1890.
