I suppose I have always had a devotion to The Precious Blood going back into my primary days when I was taught by Passionist nuns. It always seemed to me that removing the feast, or combining it with Corpus Christi, was a mistake. The powerful symbolism of blood is somehow hidden now, and we need it back so that we can really talk about the Sacrifice of Christ in a proper manner. It is wonderful that laity are now able to receive from the chalice, but they need to stop calling it "wine". Even very good Catholics do this, and it's hard to get them out of the habit. I encourage people to use the title, "Precious Blood" which perfectly describes the sacramental miracle. I believe a return to a devotion in honour of The Precious Blood may have the effect of bringing us closer to the person of Jesus. After all, the giving of blood is a very personal thing (as blood donors know), and THIS Blood is given for "you" and "me".
