Throughout July we celebrate the monthly dedication to the Precious Blood of Jesus. As a way to bring this topic into our food and drink recipes I thought I'd try my hand at a blood orange beverage. I'm so glad I did because this cold, fresh, and summery drink was just what I needed on a hot July summer day. As we sipped our drinks we read about the Precious Blood of Jesus and I came across this profound quote that I have to share with you.
"The Precious Blood which we worship is the Blood which the Savior shed for us on Calvary and reassumed at His glorious Resurrection; it is the Blood which courses through the veins of His risen, glorified, living body at the right hand of God the Father in heaven; it is the Blood made present on our altars by the words of Consecration; it is the Blood which merited sanctifying grace for us and through it washes and beautifies our soul and inaugurates the beginning of eternal life in it."
