A litany is a well-known and much appreciated form of responsive petition,
used in public liturgical services, and in private devotions, for common necessities
of the Church, or in calamities — to implore God's aid or to appease His just wrath.

This Litany in honor of Jesus in His Most Precious Blood was drawn up by the
Sacred Congregation of Rites and promulgated by Pope John XXIII on
February 24, 1960. The devotion to Jesus in His most Precious Blood was
first popularized by St. Gaspar del Bufalo (1786-1837, feast Dec. 28) who founded
the Missioners of the Most Precious Blood. A partial indulgence is granted to the
faithful who recite this litany.

Through the same Christ our Lord. 

Amen
