The Daily Holy Hour

Bishop Sheen began his daily Holy Hour as a seminarian in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

He never missed that daily hour of prayer in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament.   This extra hour was in addition to Mass.  If the church was locked, he sat on the front steps.

When the Bishop preached missions in parishes and retreats to priests, he begged priests and seminarians to be in this habit.  He also said the first half should be spent on ones knees.

He wrote his sermons and books in the chapel, as did Bishop Karol of Krakow.

  1. Let's storm heaven with the petition that Rome move now on AB Sheen's beatification.
    The holy man's example of the having a powerful spiritual life is within all our grasp.
    Lord, hear our prayer.
