Welcome to the website of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood
On October 21 we will celebrate the Solemnity of Saint Gaspar del Bufalo. The opening prayer for the liturgy speaks of Gaspar being an ardent witness of love for God and neighbor. There is no doubt that St. Gaspar was a courageous disciple of Christ, courageous in the face of persecution and courageous in his dream of founding a community, devoted to the Precious Blood, that would work for reconciliation in the Church and in the world.
We are called to be ardent witnesses of love for God and neighbor as well. We must be courageous and be willing to reach out to those on the margins. We must be courageous in prayer, ministry, and our community life. We must be courageous in imagining our future as the Missionaries of the Precious Blood.
The future was unknown to St. Gaspar in 1815 when the Congregation was founded and the future is unknown to us today. One thing is sure, however, if we remain faithful to the dream that Gaspar had, we will continue to be an effective presence in the Church and world today.
