God has not forsaken me …

coptic_crucifixion_iconOn 1st July each year Passionists celebrate the liturgical Feast of the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ.

Pope Benedict XVI said recently: “The blood of Christ is the pledge of God’s faithful love for humanity. Gazing at the wounds of the crucified Christ, every man, even in extreme moral poverty, can say: God has not forsaken me, He loves me, He gave his life for me; and so rediscover hope.” [Angelus, 5th July 2009]
