Precious Blood of St Joachim and St Elizabeth

According to NewAdvent.org., the month of July [Special Devotions for Months, http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/10542a.htm] is dedicated to Precious Blood of Jesus.

How Fitting that the parents of our B.V.M. Our Mother is honored in the month of July (July 26). Fitting because with God’s intervention and selection these two devout Jewish childless couple, from their union forms the the human nature of their only child, Mary, who is destined to say “YES.” After twenty years being sterile, Elizabeth conceives. (Impossible) Mary gives her yes, “I will be your handmaiden, the Theotokos, “God-bearer”, Mother for our God. Receiving her blood from her parents, Mary is to adorn our Savior with His True Humanity, His blood must be her DNA Match, the of exception to the x,y chromosome.. (Impossible) As with the mixing of water and wine, Mary offers her body (flesh) and unique precious blood, received from her parents, that the Holy Spirit Overshadows (Lk1:35) and through the mystery of the Incarnation, (Impossible) she births the God-man, Jesus. (True God, True Man). (Impossible) Impossible for man, Not God.
