Welcome to the website of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood
We begin this holy season of Lent with the words of the prophet Joel,
“Even now, says the Lord,
return to me with your whole heart,
with fasting, and weeping, and mourning;
Rend your hearts, not your garments,
and return to the Lord, your God.”
St. Gaspar del Bufalo proclaimed this very message each time he went into a town to preach a mission. Return to God! Rend your hearts! Recognize that you have been redeemed by the Precious Blood of Christ!
This Lenten season is an opportunity to hear these words with new ears. To let the message of Joel, of Gaspar, of Jesus penetrate our hearts and change our lives.
May these next forty days be days of continual conversion, spiritual growth, and reconciliation in your lives, your families, your communities, and the world.
