What is a Holy Hour?

A Holy Hour is simply Eucharistic Adoration. I highly recommend spending prayer time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, whether in the Tabernacle, or exposed in the Monstrance on a regular basis, in order for you to fully meditate on the mysteries of the Faith, and for you to become closer to Jesus [CCC-1378; CCC-1379; CCC-1380; CCC-1418].

During your hour of contemplating the face of Jesus, you can offer to Jesus the personal intentions on your heart, and pray for the needs of the world and the Church.

Lastly, I want to mention that studying the Catholic faith in the presence of the Eucharistic Christ, such as reading the Catechism or the Writings from the popes during your Holy Hour, is a beautiful way to spend your Holy Hour. Eucharistic Adoration puts you directly in the Real Presence of Jesus, who is the greatest teacher of all time! So to conclude, are you willing to spend one hour with the Eucharistic Jesus (Matthew 26:36-45)?
