Holy Hour Booklets
Eucharistic Services of Prayer and Praise
Editor: Eugene LaVerdiere SSS
Inspired by Saint Peter Julian Eymard, Emmanuel Publishing presents a series of Holy Hours for your prayer of adoration, praise, thanksgiving, reparation and petition. Each Holy Hour is written to promote meditation and contemplation focused on the presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Each Holy Hour is also arranged for both communal and personal prayer. For common prayer, the roles of leader and reader are distinguished from the role of the congregation. Every role was designed for personal prayer.
All are 32 page booklets in large easy to read type.
5 ¼ ” x 8 ¼ ” with full color covers.
