The chapel was of antique construction and venerated for the apparition of Angels within it. In the chapel in 1216, in a vision, St Francis obtained from Jesus himself the Indulgence of the Pardon of Assisi that was approved by Pope Honorius III.

Feast of the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord
July 1st is the Feast of the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ. The Feast was extended to the whole church in 1849 by Blessed Pope Pius IX who, in the wake of the 1848 Revolution, was living in exile at Gaeta in the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. After learning that the French Army toppled the vile Roman Republic and restored the Holy See’s temporal power, His Holiness assigned the Feast to the first Sunday of June. This was later changed to June 1st by Pope Pius X in order to reduce the number of Feast Days allocated to a Sunday. Sadly, the feast was removed from the new church calendar in 1969, but it is still in the traditional Roman calendar of 1962 usage. The month of July is dedicated to the Most Precious Blood. In celebration I’m posting the Litany of the Most Precious Blood. The accompanying photo of the tympanum with genuflecting Angels and the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ was taken at the Shrine Church of the Most Precious Blood in Little Italy, New York.

We (the little family of Luisa) will Joyfully Celebrate,
in our own communities,
The Solemnity of Corpus Christi also as
“our wedding day with the Lord”
because we are linked to the Servant of God, Luisa Piccarreta
Volume 24 – 6/12/28
Since it was the Feast of Corpus Domini, I (Luisa) was thinking to myself that that day was The Feast of the Marriage that Blessed Jesus did with souls in the Most Holy Sacrament of Love.
“…In this state of sufferings I (Jesus) will purify your soul thoroughly, in such a way as to dispose you to form a Mystical Marriage with Me; and after this, I (Jesus) will make the Last Transformation, in such a way that both of us will become like two candles placed on the Fire – one is Transformed into the other and they form a Single One.”
Volume 36 – 5/17/38
Then He added with more Loving Tenderness:
“My good daughter (Luisa), My Love wants to be tied more and more to (you) the creature, and the more Truths It (My Divine Love) Manifests regarding My Most Holy Divine Will, the more bonds I (Jesus) put between God and herself.
In Manifesting the Truth, My Divine Love is preparing the Marriage between God and the soul.
The more It Manifests the more Pomp and Magnificence this Marriage will have.
Would you like to know what happens then?
My Truths will be like the dowry needed in order to marry God; to get to know the One (God) who lowers Himself and even ties Himself—only for Love—in the bond of Marriage.
My Truths touch the creature over and over; They mold her to a New Life;
They (My Truths) return her to the Beauty of Our Image and Resemblance from the time she was Created, and Impress on her Their kiss of inseparable Union.
Just one of Our Truths can make a Sea of Prodigies and Divine Creations in the soul who has the goodness to listen to It.
One Truth can turn a perverted world into a Good and Holy one, because It is one of Our Lives, exposed for the Good of all.
It is a New Sun that We raise in created intellects; a Sun that will let Itself be known through Its Light and Heat, turning into Light and Heat whoever wants to listen.
Therefore, hiding a Truth that We give from Our Paternal Womb, with so much Love, is the greatest crime. It deprives human generations of the Greatest Good.
Further, one (Luisa and those linked to Luisa) who Lives in Our Most Holy Divine Will, by Marrying Us (Triune God), makes a Feast for all Saints.
All of them participate in this Divine Wedding and, because of It, they have their own party in Heaven and another one on earth.
Each act the creature does in Our Most Holy Divine Will is a Feast; a table sumptuously decked for the Heavenly Regions.
In return, the Saints give New Gifts.
They beseech the Lord to Manifest more Truths to the soul (Luisa), to broaden more and more the boundaries of the dowry that God gave to her (and to those linked to her.”)
“When one is linked to Luisa, one will also possess the Mystical Marriage because of her”
