Holy Hour and Mass: Healing Through Forgiveness
Every Saturday we have Novena to Our Lady followed by Benediction. Every 1st Friday of the month we have Holy Hour in front of the Blessed Sacrament. I would like to encourage all of you, my dear parishioners, to begin the practice of spending time with the Lord during Holy Hour at least once a month.
By spending time during Holy Hour either on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, we are invited to pray for the Lord’s intentions for the Church, for priests, and for the salvation of souls as we grow in patience, kindness and find inner peace.
When you come to Church especially during Holy Hour, do keep repeating His words of mercy. In the process of spending an hour with the Lord, you may encounter the Lord’s mercy. Your tears will cease, your anger ends, your peace returns, and your joy, comes back.
Eventually, you will be able to pray the words of forgiveness from your heart. I am confident that the grace of the Eucharist at Mass and Holy Hour will carry us to the place of encounter with Jesus who forgives and heals.
The grace to forgive flows from His pierced heart and His agony, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do” (Luke 23:24).
