A compilation of monthly Holy Hours in reparation for the offenses of the Sacred Heart. They are meant to be an intimate and fervent supplication, expressing our longing for a greater intimacy with Jesus, offering Him a living atonement for our sins; especially the sins of ingratitude and the easygoing ways of many formalistic friends.
The Holy Hour is a very dear devotion to many Catholics. Contained in this book are 21 different Holy Hours for every First Friday of the year, Our Lord’s Passion, Mothers, those suffering, the Sacred Heart, and even contemplatives.
The words of Father Mateo, even in cold print, will stir the affections to a more ardent love for the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament. This book was not written for pious souls only. Let the lukewarm, the indifferent, even the unbeliever give it a reading. Who can estimate the real worth of the silent hours before the Tabernacle in which devout souls with Jesus seek true peace for all the world? Father Mateo’s Apostolate is the answer to the tragedies of the times. It almost seems that these things are permitted to draw devout souls closer to Jesus who will hold up before this sin-stained, troubled world the Scourged, Thorn-crowned, Bleeding Savior, and in pious triumph cry out: “Behold your King!”. In this book are offered twenty-one different Holy Hours as a token of love and reparation to the most Sacred Heart of Jesus, the King enthroned in very many Catholic homes, and the Adorable Friend of parents and children. The Holy Hours include one for each month, one to start the New Year, Holy Hour for the intimate family and social reign of the Sacred Heart, Holy Hour to enlighten and comfort souls who suffer, etc.
