The Bible records that St. Peter and John went into the Sepulcher at the news Jesus had arisen from the dead. There in the tomb was the Shroud, but that was not all to be found in the tomb. There was also found a copy of a letter believed to have been written by Jesus. According to the letter, it covered the drops of Blood Jesus suffered throughout His Passion and Death.
Today, this letter is maintained in a silver box by the Pope as it has been preserved by Emperors and Empresses defending the faith.
News of this letter has transcended time and into legend. Inspired by the Gospel and this legendary letter, St. Elizabeth, Queen of Hungary, St. Matilda, St, Bridget and others prayed to Our Lord asking about His terrible suffering. Jesus responded to them:
"I descended from Heaven to the Earth in order to convert you.
If olden times people were religious and their harvests were abundant; at present, on the contrary, they are scanty.
If you want to reap an abundant harvest you must not work on Sunday, for on Sunday you must go to Church and pray to God to forgive your sins. He gave you six days in which to work and one for rest and devotion and to tender your help to the poor and assist in the Church.
Those people, who brawl against my religion and cast slurs on this Sacred Letter, shall be forsaken by Me.
On the contrary, those people who shall carry a copy of this letter with them shall be free from death by drowning and sudden death. They shall be free from all contagious diseases and lightening; they shall not die without confession, and shall be free from their enemies and from the hand of wrongful authority, and from all their slanderers and false witnesses.
