How To Make A Holy Hour Of Adoration:


Suggestion - Break Hour Into Four Segments

There is no correct way to actually "make" a Holy Hour of adoration. Silently saying the rosary, reading the Bible, saying the Divine Mercy Chaplet, praising Jesus, or just silently listening to the inspirations of Jesus are all good examples of how to make a Holy Hour among many others. For those who want some guidance a suggested way to begin making Holy Hours of adoration is to break the Holy Hour up into the following fifteen-minute segments:
  • During the first fifteen minutes meditate on who is present before you - it is Jesus, in this very room, who walked the earth and died on the cross for us.

  • During the second segment devote time to thoughts of praise and thanksgiving as you grasp the reality of His Presence before you.

  • Dedicate the third period to a time of silent petition interceding not only for oneself but family, friends and the world.

  • Lastly concentrate on a few simple prayers of atonement expressing to the Lord sorrow not only for our sins but also for the sins of the world.

At the end of this thank Him for the grace for making this Holy Hour of adoration and ask for the grace to come again.
