“Precious Blood, Ocean of Divine Mercy, flow upon us!
Most Pure offering, procure us every grace!
Hope and refuge of sinners, atone for us!
Delight of the Holy Souls, draw us!
St. Gaspar del Buffalo (died 1837) renowned apostle of the Precious Blood and founder of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood (C.PP.S) used to say that he wished he had a thousand tongues to preach about the power of the Blood of Jesus for the salvation of all. Prophetically, St. Gaspar said, "No! The chastisements of God are not yet at end; still more sorrowful times are ahead; and divine justice will be placated by the devotion to the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ."
At the turn of the twentieth century, Our Lord appeared to Sr. Mary Martha Chambon (1841-1907) of the Monastery of the Visitation in Chambery, France. He gave her a double mission to adore and invoke the Sacred Wounds unceasingly and to revive this devotion in the hearts of creatures. Our Lord said:
“The soul who during life has honored and studied the Wounds of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and has offered them to the Eternal Father for the souls in Purgatory, will be accompanied at the moment of death by the Holy Virgin and the angels; and Our Lord on the Cross all brilliant with glory will receive her and crown her.”
Pope John XXIII stated, "The world can still set itself right and always will be able to, because the voice and Blood of Christ cry out for pity and mercy... Devotion to the Precious Blood is the devotion of our time...It is devotion for all souls, for the whole world." Now at the dawning of the twenty-first century, Our Lord has come again to wake us from our slumber and to plead with us to return to this powerful devotion to console Him, to adore His Precious Blood, and in return, He will bless us. In 1995, in the village of Olo in Nigeria, a nearly illiterate teenage boy was called by Our Lord to renew this devotion for the world. From his diary we read:
Date: 5 July 1995
Place: Inside my room in Olo at the place where I hung my Crucifix
“ I returned home from (my) studies and decided to rest as I waited for the hour of Divine Mercy... While waiting, there was a sudden calmness in the room in which I was. It seemed to me as ...there was no movement of any object in the world. If a pin had fall...one could have heard its sound. In this great silence I heard a voice which called my name, "Barnabas, Barnabas." The voice was so gentle and pleading. I turned and could not see who was calling me. I looked at my watch, it was 3:01pm. The voice continued, "Barnabas, console Me, adore My Precious Blood, I am the Agonizing Jesus Christ."
In this silent moment, I heard the voice of choirs, which sang the song of the Precious Blood and prayed in this way, "Precious Blood of Jesus Christ, save us and the whole world." (It was later that I discovered that the prayer was the Chaplet of the Precious Blood) In the end, the voice said, "I bless you My son." Immediately the whole encounter passed. I later said my prayer of Divine Mercy. ”
Date: 6 July 1995
Place: In front of my Crucifix in my room in Olo
“ In my prayer during this hour of Divine Mercy, I saw in an instant a sudden change in my room. The whole room was illuminated with light. There was the same calmness I experienced the previous day. As I was looking at the crucifix (hanging) on the wall, suddenly (a) cloud came down and covered it. In the cloud appeared the Agonizing Jesus Christ hanging on the Cross bleeding. His Head was crowned with thorns. (His) Sacred Heart appeared on His chest which issued Divine rays. He kept silent for awhile...then said, "Barnabas, I am Jesus Christ Who died on the Cross of Calvary to save the world. I am the One who laid My Body to be scourged that men might be free. I bore all the shame they deserved with My Blood, I purchased them, yet My people did not know Me. I am still the One Who am suffering the agony due to their sins. Barnabas, console Me, adore My Precious Blood. I am the Agonizing Jesus Christ Who loves you much, have mercy on Me. I bless you, My son."
Immediately, the whole encounter passed. ”
Date: 7 July 1995
Place: In front of my Crucifix in my room in Olo
“ Just before the commencement of my prayer, right in front of my crucifix, appeared the Agonizing Face of Jesus Christ Who calmly said, "Barnabas, why is it that you cannot answer My appeal of love? Have mercy on Me, I am the Agonizing Jesus Christ Whom you and the world crucify every second and minute of the day with your sins. I called you to adore My Precious Blood. If you answer My call of love to adore My Precious Blood, I will choose you as My instrument to save you and your people who will return to me. Through My Precious Blood, I will renew the face of the earth. There shall be done on earth the Will of My Father as it is done in Heaven. Your eyes will see the Reign of Peace in the world."
"Agonizing Jesus Christ, I am willing to do Your Will. I love You....I love You...I love You"...As I said these words, my heart melted and I wept with a heart full of sorrow. In the end, the Agonizing Jesus Christ said "Remain in My peace. I bless you, My son." Instantly, the whole encounter passed. This was the very day I narrated my encounter to my sister Irene...who advised me to record the whole happening. This I did, and the incidents stopped for (a) year. ”
Our Lord is asking us to pray for deliverance for those under ancestral curses, for the protection and unity of the flock of the faithful, for all men to take refuge in His Sacred Side, for the sustenance of the faith through bitter trials, for the manifestation of the Divine Will, for endurance for all men through the coming chastisement, against a fall in faith under trial, and to vanquish Satan and his agents. He also asks us to pray for His Glorious Reign on earth, for strength against the sins of the flesh, and for the Baptism of aborted babies.
Our Lord gave a rich deposit of teachings from the angels and saints in heaven on the virtues and how we can perfect these virtues in our own lives. He has also enriched this particular devotion with powerful sacramentals.
This Devotion is the Ark of the End Times for Your Family and the Church
Our Lord told young Barnabas that this is the last devotion He is giving the Church in this age and the greatest devotion He has ever given the Church. It is the ultimate weapon against evil in the world and Our Lord is calling His remnant people to take up this "dry and desert way" of prayer and begin to drive back the evil engulfing the world, the Church and our families. His promises are great for those who take up this devotion, especially for the protection and conversion of all your loved ones if you would only pray the Chaplet of the Precious Blood daily for them. Read Our Lord's message about this slowly and meditatively:
"Be humble and accept the Divine Will, you will reach the end. Offer your families to my Precious Blood. I will save them. I promise to convert them before the Great Tribulation comes. There will be peace and love. I say to you adore and honor My Precious Blood.
I will allow My Precious Blood to fall on the heart of every sinner offered to My Precious Blood. I say to you offer to Me and pray for them always through My Precious Blood. I will destroy all evils in your families. I have heard your prayers. Rejoice for your request has been granted.
My children, never fail to give testimony when you see this goodness from the One who loves thee." (25 July 1997)
