This site has been consecrated to

Our Lady of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus Christ.

We further pray for the intercessions of St. Peter Claver, St. Francis of Assisi, St. John of God, Venerable Pierre Toussaint, St. Moses the Moor, St. Rose of Lima, St. Rose Duchesne, St. Martin de Porres, St. Gaspar del Bufalo, Blessed Maria Mattias, St. Maximilian Kolbe, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, Blessed Katherine Drexel, Blessed Edith Stein, Venerable Matthew Talbot, St. Francis Xavier Cabrini, St. Vincent de Paul, St. Louise Marillac, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, Dorothy Day, Peter Maurin, Matthew Talbot, Mother Mary Elizabeth Lange, Archbishop Oscar Romero, Fr. Stanley Rother, and Mother Teresa of Calcutta,

whose lives of heroic virtue in service to the poor show us how to work for an increase in justice for all.

If you think I'm invoking a lot of saints here, well, the work of justice and peace needs all the help it can get. I have great faith that those in our history who once lived and worked in solidarity with the poor remain active today. We do not see them with our eyes or otherwise perceive them with our human senses, but they remain in solidarity with us and intercede for us before the Throne of Grace.

St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle!

All you saints and angels, pray for the poor.

Glory be to the Blood of Jesus Christ, now and forevermore!
