Irondale, AL (EWTN) – Join the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration at Our Lady of the Angels Monastery and the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word in praying that those who have suffered abuse may find healing and justice during a series of Holy Hours for Healing and Justice. The program will air at 6 p.m. ET, every Sunday through December 23. (Find EWTN at www.ewtn.com/channelfinder.)
The Holy Hours will take place at the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Hanceville (every three weeks beginning Sept. 30) and Our Lady of the Angels Chapel in Irondale, AL. (the other two weeks beginning Sept. 23).
Local viewers are encouraged to participate in these televised Holy Hours.
“The current crisis is deeply painful for all of us who love the Church,” said EWTN Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael P. Warsaw. “It is important to remember, as Mother Angelica reminded us so often through the years, that we need to place our faith in the Lord and not men. We encourage our Family to pray for healing and justice for victims, for repentance and accountability by perpetrators, and for peace and perseverance in the Faith among our brothers and sisters in Christ.”
In addition to exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, viewers will learn about that week’s theme and purpose, join in praying a rosary with pertinent meditations, listen to a relevant Scripture passage, pray (a penitential psalm, the Divine Mercy Chaplet or Litany, a Chaplet of Adoration and Reparation or other prayers), and be treated to the nun’s singing or an organ solo.
