Litany of the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ

This Litany in honor of Jesus in His Most Precious Blood was 
drawn up by the Sacred Congregation of Rites and promulgated by Pope 
John XXIII on February 24, 1960. The devotion to Jesus in His most 
Precious Blood was first popularized by St. Gaspar del Bufalo (1786-1837,
feast Dec. 28) who founded the Missioners of the Most Precious Blood. 
A partial indulgence is granted to the faithful who recite this litany.
