Continuing with this month’s theme of the Most Precious Blood:

Christ’s Blood is the precious source of salvation for the world precisely because it belongs to the Word who became flesh for our salvation.

The sign of “blood poured out”, as an expression of life given in bloodshed as a witness to supreme love, is an act of divine condescension to our human condition. God chose the sign of blood because no other sign suggests a person’s total involvement so eloquently.

(Pope John Paul II, Christ’s Blood, Source of Salvation, July 1, 2000)
