Excerpt from Readings and Reflections for the Holy Hour: The Manifestations of the Divine Presence
F late years there has been a wonderful spread of devotion to the Blessed Sacrament of the altar among the faithful; there has been witnessed a happy rivalry between the clergy and the laity in their efforts to extend to our divine Lord in His Sacrament Of Love every token Of the deepest love and veneration. Next to the intimate union of our souls with the beloved Jesus in Holy Communion, the piety Of the devout Christian has found another method by which he can approach his Lord in the Holy Eucharist, namely the Holy Hour. This beautiful service was Suggested by real faith and burning love, of Adoration, Thanks giving, and Reparation. The various Eucha ristic Associations and Tabernacle Societies have introduced into parishes the weekly or monthly Holy Hour.
This little book goes forth, in a very humble way, to join the many other Eucharistic gems that are placed at our disposal to enhance the Holy Hour. These readings Of the Manifestations of the Real Presence, taken from Christian authors of learning and piety, are intended to rouse the luke warm, to bring sinners back to God, to inﬂame the pious with more ardent love for Jesus Christ, and to cause the unbeliever to reﬂect on the truths of our holy religion.
