About the Topic:

Eros is an ascending love calling us up a “ladder of love,” as we move from one rung to another until we can satiate in the divine beauty-itself.

What’s your holy hour look like? 

There’s a common thread among thousands of formerly sinful people we now call Saints.

They had a relationship with God.

Which then inspired them to ‘set the world on fire’ as Catherine of Sienna put it.

But, more specifically, it meant they put in the time.

They sat with the Lord. Spoke with Him. Listened to Him.

Daily.

They unveiled their hearts and wounds and problems to Him.

They offered him thanks and gratitude.

They left their sufferings with Him on the altar.

They begged for His help.

My question to you: are you putting in the time?

I’m not talking about time to just talk at Him or sit in church making a mental grocery list. I’m talking about time to build a consistent, honest relationship. Time to speak, and time to listen.

Whether you want to pray a daily holy hour or hit up adoration once a week, I have a guide here from the makers of Exodus 90 specifically about praying a Holy Hour.

Inside, you’ll find a simple breakdown that shows you how to structure your time with the Lord.
