People of the Covenant

We are people of the covenant, people chosen by God to be in relationship with God. The covenant once established with Abraham and his descendants has been extended to all people through the life, death and resurrection of the Word made flesh, Jesus the Christ of Nazareth.

A covenant is a binding agreement between two or more parties. In the scriptures, it is always an agreement between two very unequal parties. God does not need the covenant. The recipient of the covenant is the one in need. Whether the covenant is between God and one person, God and a people or God and all people, the covenant is not for God’s benefit, but for the benefit of those with whom God enters into covenant.

We begin this reflection on the spirituality of the Precious Blood by looking at the covenant sealed in blood between God and the people of God before the coming of the Christ. Then we move on to the writings of the apostles and the gospels.
