The inspiration for the Holy Hour is found in Matthew 26:40. In the Gospel of Matthew, during the agony in the Garden of Gethsemane the night before his crucifixion, Jesus spoke to his disciples, saying “My soul is sorrowful even to death. Remain here and keep watch with me.” Returning to the disciples after prayer, he found them asleep and he asked Peter: “Could you not keep watch with me for an hour?” The Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament is a time for silent adoration and prayer in the presence of Christ, the crucified, risen and living Lord.
