Recipes for July ~ Month dedicated to the Most Precious Blood

The month of July is dedicated to the Most Precious Blood. (The Feast of the Most Precious Blood, established by Pope Pius IX in 1849, is celebrated each year on the first Sunday of July.) The early Fathers say that the Church was born from the pierced side of Christ, and that the sacraments were brought forth through His Blood.

*Note:  The feasts of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary fall on the 1st and 2nd of July this year.   You can find recipe suggestions in the June Archive post, or under the labels for the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart.
