Welcome to the website of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood
Once again we have arrived at the special season of Advent., a season of preparation and longing for the coming of the Savior. This year, however, Advent takes on a special significance with the opening of the Year of Mercy.
Pope Francis has called us to reflect on the mercy of God in our lives. The Year of Mercy is not limited to celebrations in Rome or in cathedrals, instead Pope Francis’s message is the same as St. Gaspar’s. The mercy of God is available to everyone, everywhere.
St. Gaspar preached the merciful and reconciling power of the Precious Blood of Christ. Let us follow the example of Pope Francis and St. Gaspar. Let us proclaim the mercy of God to everyone we meet during this Advent season. Let us experience God’s mercy and reconciliation in our lives. And let us remember what St. Paul wrote, “Christ has entrusted us with the message of reconciliation…we have become ambassadors of Christ.”
May this Advent season be one of mercy and reconciliation.
