12 Days of Christmas (Songs) - Day 8: Blood Will Be Shed

 

The 12 Days of Christmas: A hidden catechesis for Catholics while they endured persecution in England (1558-1829). You can read more about it here. This year I will be posting a Christmas song for each day.

Day 8: Eight Maids a-Milking

The eight beatitudes are the message of the day.

As a bonus, my favourite song on the album, Lo How a Rose E'er Blooming:
