We have begun the season of Lent and I would like to write about the Lenten Holy Hours we will hold during the first five Sundays of Lent. A holy hour is a time of prayer usually held in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. There are many ways to use that time of prayer; some people pray the rosary, or read from spiritual books, or pray their devotional prayers. However usually there is time for quiet personal prayer in which each person enters into a very personal conversation with Jesus who is present to each person in their hearts and in the Eucharist.
Our Lenten Holy Hours will consist of the exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, the recitation of the Church’s Evening Prayer followed by a talk, and then a quiet time for personal prayer. The holy hour will finish with benediction. The talks will be given mostly by guest speakers, and they will address the Seven Last Words of Jesus on the cross. These words of Jesus are given great importance because as He hung dying on the cross He expressed what was most important to Him and in turn gave us a glimpse into His Sacred Heart, and as Saint Catherine of Siena tells us: ‘the Eternal Father’s truth, the ineffable love with which we were created.’ The seven last words of Jesus also show what should be most essential to us. The speakers and themes will be as follows:
I hope that you will be able to make the time for these holy hours so that they will be a time for you to grow in your faith and love for Christ, and your commitment to Him.
