Precious Blood St. Benedict Celtic Cross (without stand)
The Precious Blood Crucifix honors the Passion of Christ. It recognizes the sacrifice of Jesus, when He died to save us by spilling His Precious Blood for us. The Blood is made present through the gift of the Eucharist and is something we can consume at Mass, along with the body of Christ, under the appearance of bread and wine.
This Precious Blood Crucifix will encourage us to meditate on the profound sacrifice of Jesus and the pouring out of his blood for humanity.
O God, who by the Precious Blood of your only Begotten son have redeemed the whole world,
preserve in us the work of your mercy,
so that, ever honoring the mystery of our salvation,
we may merit to obtain its fruits.
Through our lord Jesus Christ, your son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the holy spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
Admitted to your sacred table, O Lord, we have with joy drawn water from the fountains of the Savior: O may his blood, we beseech thee, become within us a fountain of water springing up to eternal life.
This is a commission from our society member, Brad S. based on his insight to honor our Lord through the corpus made in gold in a deep red color of wood depicting the Precious Blood of Jesus.
