Prayer. Holy Hour

The Holy Hour in the tradition of the Roman Catholic Church is the practice of consecrating one hour in prayerful worship of the Holy Gifts.

Margarita Maria Alakok

St. Margaret Mary Alacoque began this practice in 1673. She had a vision of Christ, who asked her to empathize with Him by praying on her knees with her head bowed to the ground from eleven o'clock in the evening until midnight on the night of the first Friday of each month. Thus He asked her to abide with Him and become an accomplice in the mortal sorrow that He experienced in the Garden of Gethsemane, having been abandoned by the apostles.

Every night, between Thursday and Friday, I will make you partaker of that sorrow unto death which it was my will to suffer in the Garden of Olives. ... To join with me in the humble prayer which I then offered to my Father, you shall rise between eleven o'clock and midnight; you shall prostrate yourself with me for one hour, with your face to the ground, both to appease the anger of God by imploring mercy for sinners, and to sweeten in some way the bitterness I felt when my Apostles abandoned me, being unable to watch one hour with me.

Endure with the Lord

11 It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: Rom 6, 4.
12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: Мф 10, 33. Мк 8, 38. Лк 9, 26.

24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the church: Rom 5, 3.

2 Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. Ин 13, 34. 1Th 5, 14.

Death Struggles in the Garden of Gethsemane

36 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder. Мк 14, 32. Лк 22, 39.
37 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy. Пс 114, 3. Ин 12, 27.
38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.
39 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. Мф 20, 22. Ин 5, 30. Phl 2, 8. Евр 5, 7-8.
40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?
41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.
43 And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.
44 And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.
45 Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
46 Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.

32 And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray. Мф 26, 36. Лк 22, 39.
33 And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy;
34 And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch.
35 And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him.
36 And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt. Мф 26, 39. Phl 2, 8. Евр 5, 7-8.
37 And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour?
38 Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak. Лк 22, 40.
39 And again he went away, and prayed, and spake the same words.
40 And when he returned, he found them asleep again, (for their eyes were heavy,) neither wist they what to answer him.
41 And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
42 Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand.

39 And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him. Мф 26, 36. Мк 14, 32. Ин 18, 1.
40 And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation. Мф 26, 41. Мк 14, 38.
41 And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed,
42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
43 And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.
44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
45 And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow,
46 And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.
