Find a quiet place in your home and pray for one hour each week

A few months ago, I wrote a letter to the editor pertaining to adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament in chapels available throughout the city.

Now, I would like to make a suggestion to those who cannot go to one of these chapels because of age, health, lack of transportation or whatever reason.

I would like to suggest that they choose one day of each week to go to a quiet place in their home and pray for one hour.

I would suggest that this be done on the same day and hour each week, if possible, so it becomes a habit. If there are others in your home, it might serve you well to tell them what you will be doing for the next hour to avoid any disruptions.

I would also like to suggest that you build a “shrine” in this room, with perhaps a crucifix and/or statues, as a means for keeping your mind focused.

I think God will bless you for doing this.

And I would like to add a suggestion to this practice: spend some of this hour praying for those who could spend time in one of the chapels, but do not.
