Forty Hours Adoration Devotional Prayerbook contains reflections and readings on the Most Holy Eucharist along with psalms, hymns and prayers for the Forty Hours devotion, or holy hour, or private Eucharistic visits.
The Forty Hours Adoration is a devotion to the Blessed Sacrament solemnly exposed on the altars of our churches. It extends over a period of forty hours, so arranged as to include portions of three days, to correspond to the time our Lord’s Sacred Body remained in the Sepulchre. It is opened with solemn Mass of the Blessed Sacrament, celebrated at the high altar on which the Blessed Sacrament is to remain enthroned. At the close of the Mass, the Blessed Sacrament is borne around the church in solemn procession, while the beautiful hymn of St. Thomas Aquinas, Pange Lingua, originally written for the feast of Corpus Christi, is sung.
