Despite the threat of rain and the scorching Texan heat, about 170 local Catholics attended the event, some coming from as far away as Louisiana. All were animated by the same ardent desire to defend the honor of Our Lord against this public outrage. The rally started at 4:30 p.m. to the sound of “Hail Holy Queen Enthroned Above” as a statue of Our Lady of Fatima, carried by members of the American TFP, processed in and took her place in the front of the crowd. Young and old alike filled the sidewalks around the museum, praying the rosary, singing hymns, and holding signs and large banners. The participants also joined in proclaiming slogans of protest and reparation. “Will we stand idle while Our Lord Jesus Christ is publicly blasphemed?” “Never!” “Jesus, we love Thee!” “Forever!” The disgruntled museum staff promptly called the police. Soon, about a dozen officers appeared on the scene to investigate, but they quickly saw that it was a peaceful protest and allowed the rally to proceed. “I can tell that you have all done this before because you are following all the rules,” complimented the lead officer. Watch the Video The rally was interrupted by several people that taunted and defiantly waved rainbow flags. Undeterred, the protesters stood firm for the full two-hour rally, enduring the insults with bravery and offering it up in reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus . They had much to hope in the beautiful words of Our Lord in scripture. “He who confesses Me before men, I will confess him before My Father in heaven.”

The imagery of sacrificial blood from slain animals is made more vivid and meaningful if we recall Moses’ words from the Book of Exodus, “And he took the blood and sprinkled it upon the people, and he said: This is the blood of the covenant, which the Lord has made with you concerning all these words.” (Exod. 24:8) http://www.tfp.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/2010_Sacrifice_at_the_altar.jpg This old sacrifice took a new form in the New Testament when the Immaculate Lamb of God offered Himself on the altar of the Cross to redeem mankind from sin and the slavery of Satan. And during the Last Supper, Our Lord offered Himself in an unbloody yet real sacrifice when He uttered the following words, “For this is my blood of the new testament, which shall be shed for many unto remission of sins.” (Matt. 26:28) Truly, this “shedding of blood” or “pouring out of blood” took place and forms one of the glorious mysteries of our Faith. 4 The Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ Catholic doctrine teaches the faithful that the blood of Jesus Christ is part of His Sacred Humanity and hypostatically united to the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity. 5 And as such, it is worthy of adoration and veneration proper to latreutical worship ( cultus latriae ) which is rendered only to God.  In other words, we adore the human nature of Christ because of its intimate and eternal union with the Person of the Divine Word. It is for this same reason that we honor the Most Sacred Heart or the Wounds of Our Lord Jesus Christ. The Devotion to the Precious Blood This devotion is one of the most ancient of pious Church practices. It is said that the Blessed Virgin venerated the Most Precious Blood of her infant Son on the day of His circumcision as she collected the first relics of His Precious Blood on a piece of cloth. On that momentous occasion she united her tears with that of the Word Incarnate on account of not so much of the sensible pain but of His supernatural sorrow for the hard-heartedness of mortals. 6 http://www.tfp.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/Prophecies_Our_Lady_of_Good_Success.jpg Learn All About the Prophecies of Our Lady of Good Success About Our Times It was the first of seven blood-sheddings of Our Divine Savior, the rest being: 2.   The Agony in the Garden 3.   The Scourging at the Pillar 4.   The Crowning with Thorns 5. The Way of the Cross 6.   The Crucifixion 7.   The Piercing of His Heart In his book, The Precious Blood , Father Frederick William Faber, D.D., calls Saint Paul the Doctor of the Precious Blood owing to his evident fondness to preach on the subject in his epistles (Rom. 3:25; Eph. 1:7; Heb. 9:12). He recounts that the lives of saints are replete with devotion to the Precious Blood making special mention of Saint John Chrysostom, Saint Austin, Saint Gertrude and Saint Catherine of Sienna whom he considered the Prophetess of the Precious Blood for putting emphasis on it as the solution to the ills of her times. Father Faber also remarks that the Precious Blood makes us appreciate more Christ’s redemption of mankind, His sacrifice and Passion. It also makes us comprehend the beautiful doctrine and the august realities of the Blessed Sacrament as we kneel in front of the tabernacle in humble adoration. Over time the Church gave Her blessing to the devotion by approving societies like the Missionaries of the Precious Blood; enriching confraternities like that of Saint Nicholas in Carcere, in Rome, and that of the London Oratory; attaching indulgences to prayers and scapulars in honor of the Precious Blood; and instituting commemorative feasts of the Precious Blood, Friday after the fourth Sunday in Lent and, since Pius IX, the first Sunday of July. 7 Sadly, however, the feast was removed from the church calendar in 1969, the argument being that the cultus of the Precious Blood is included in the Mass and Divine Office of the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ ( Corpus Christi ). Nevertheless, it is still laudable and salutary to continue to see the month of July as dedicated to the Most Precious Blood, just as Blessed Pope Pius IX intended it to be. 8
