Power and Sacrifice of the Blood of Christ


Lord Jesus:   The cure for very many physical and spiritual afflictions lays in becoming aware of My presence in the soul and the body and in the adoration of this presence. After the Holy Communion, My Flesh and My Blood are located in your body. My Blood combines with your blood and circulates throughout the entire body. You have within you the highest good, the source of eternal life, the sanctifying force a drop of which saves and heals millions of souls. The power of My Blood is unimaginable for you. Everything that you are able to obtain from My Almighty Father, you obtain it thanks to this Blood, through the power of which have been opened the gates of Heaven and the graces of Heaven. Each request is a request for My Blood, because it is this Blood that obtained everything for you.

My children, your faults have been washed away, your debts repaid, but also all the benefactions for which you ask My Father had to be bought for you. Who else could have paid for them, if not I? My Sacrifice is infinite and inexhaustible. Its merit lasts forever and forever you can draw from this source, which has been opened for you. So be aware, when receiving Me in the Holy Communion, Who dwells in you and what is the power of His presence.

At each Holy Mass, you are located under My cross. From this cross, rivers of My precious Blood are flowing upon you. Who will stand under that cross and will await this Blood with adoration, will obtain propitiation through the power of this Holy Blood…  My blood is actually present during each sacrifice of the Holy Mass, but My Sacrifice occurs in a non-material way. This means that I truly suffer, but in a suprahuman dimension… The Blood, which is consumed by the Priest, is physical, but it does not flow from My Wounds in a physical way, materializing only for you so you can truly consume it…

My true Blood is in My Body, which is received by every believer. The consumption of My Blood from the chalice should be the sole privilege of the priest; because it is not only a question of consumption of My Blood, but of the dimension of sacrifice of this pure, outpoured Blood, which is Redemption. I offer this Blood directly to the priest from My Wounds, in order to offer it to the Father through his soul. It is part of the sacrifice of the priest. He lends Me his soul, so that this Blood may be poured directly from the cross first into his soul, sanctifying it for his sacred ministry, and only through the soul of the priest it is offered to the Father. He accepts It for Me on behalf of all humanity. He takes It upon himself, to later distribute its merits among the faithful.  The purpose of this rite is different than sole consumption. Thus, it is a mistake to distribute this consecrated Blood among the faithful, because its merit is not used to the end. I want to give out My gifts through the priests. I want to perform this Sacrifice from them and through them. The layman receives this holy Blood without the awareness of its power, he does not offer it to the Father, and does not multiply its power by his sacrifice. This is the exclusive privilege of the priest.
