The Holy Hour is a very dear devotion to many Catholics. Contained in this book are 21 different Holy Hours for every First Friday of the year, Our Lord’s Passion, Mothers, those suffering, the Sacred Heart, and even contemplatives.
The words of Father Mateo, even in cold print, will stir the affections to a more ardent love for the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament. This book was not written for pious souls only. Let the lukewarm, the indifferent, even the unbeliever give it a reading. Who can estimate the real worth of the silent hours before the Tabernacle in which devout souls with Jesus seek true peace for all the world?
Father Mateo’s Apostolate is the answer to the tragedies of the times. It almost seems that these things are permitted to draw devout souls closer to Jesus who will hold up before this sin-stained, troubled world the Scourged, Thorn-crowned, Bleeding Savior, and in pious triumph cry out: “Behold your King!”
This book offers 21 different Holy Hours as a token of love and reparation to the most Sacred Heart of Jesus, the King enthroned in very many Catholic homes, and the Adorable Friend of parents and children. The Holy Hours include one for each month, one to start the New Year, Holy Hour for the intimate family and social reign of the Sacred Heart, Holy Hour to enlighten and comfort souls who suffer, etc.
Father Mateo Crawley-Boevey was born on November 18th 1875, near Arequipa, in Peru, and he was called back to God on May 4th 1960, in Valparaiso, in Chile. He is the founder of the congregation of the “Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary”.
