Catholic Prayer: Family Holy Hour

Description:

This family Holy Hour is an answer to the need of generous souls who desire to live more perfectly the spirit of the Enthronement, and who wish to do more (we might say much more) for the Most Sacred Heart. This is just a brief overview of the division of hours during the night.

Prayer:

The families who practice this custom may be divided into two groups:

First, those who promise to make the Holy Hour before the Image of the King of Love, on the eve of the First Friday, or some other day at their choice, once a month. It might be that the parents and children — all — assemble for this purpose at the most favorable hour, often from eight to nine p.m., or even later, to join in this Nocturnal Hour of Reparation and Love.

A second class that is more generous and, consequently, smaller, consists of families who organize a Night of Adoration at Home. This is done preferably on the eve of the First Friday, in families, fervent families that are sufficiently large enough in numbers to adore from eleven p.m. to five a.m.
