1 Peter 1:17-19

“Et si patrem invocatis eum, qui sine acceptione personarum judicat secundum uniuscujusque opus, in timore incolatus vestri tempore conversamini. Scientes quod non corruptibilibus, auro vel argento, redempti estis de vana vestra conversatione paternæ traditionis: sed pretioso sanguine quasi agni immaculati Christi, et incontaminati.” 

The Precious Blood“You appeal to God as your Father; yes, but He judges each man impartially by what he has done; look anxiously, then, to the ordering of your lives while your stay on earth lasts.  What was the ransom that freed you from the vain observances of ancestral tradition? You know well enough that it was not paid in earthly currency, silver or gold; it was paid in the precious blood of Christ; no lamb was ever so pure, so spotless a victim.”
