The Hour of Grace

Tomorrow is December 8th, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, a Holy
Day of Obligation.

It is also the day on which in 1947, Our Blessed Mother gave to us the
Hour of Grace.

Our Lady said as follows: "It is my wish that every year, on 8th
at noon, the HOUR OF GRACE FOR THE WORLD be celebrated. Many divine and bodily graces will be received through this devotion. Our Lord, my Divine Son Jesus, will send His overflowing mercy if good people will pray continuously for their sinful brother….. it is my wish that the HOUR OF GRACE FOR THE WORLD be made known and spread throughout the world. If anyone is unable to visit his church, yet will pray at noon at home, he will also receive graces through me…..will find a secure heavenly ladder and receive protection and grace through my motherlyheart. "

Below is the formula for the Hour of Grace. Our Lady promised
She will hear any prayer we make at this time.


1. Day and time of the Hour of Grace: December 8th, Feast of the
Immaculate Conception,
to be started at 12:00 noon and continuing until
1:00 p.m. for one full hour of prayer.

2. During this hour, the person making the "Hour of Grace" either at
home or at Church must
put away all distractions (do not answer the
telephones, or answer any doors, or do anything but totally concentrate
on your union with God during this special Hour of Grace).

3. Begin the Hour of Grace by praying three (3) times the 51st Psalm
with outstretched arms (Psalm 51 is included below).

4. The rest of the Hour of Grace may be spent in silent communication
with God meditating upon the Passion of Jesus, praying the Holy Rosary,
praising God in your own way, or by using favorite prayers, singing
hymns, meditating upon other Psalms, etc.

Please copy and distribute this message. Remember to pray for your
country during this hour.*
The Blessed Virgin has requested that her
important message be sent throughout the entire world. Please help her
mission: that all souls be drawn to GOD, and that JESUS will be loved in
every heart. This is the perpetual song of her heart. Let it also be

Ps.51 Verses 1 to 19

    [1] Have mercy on me, O God,
    according to thy steadfast love;
    according to thy abundant mercy blot out my transgressions.
    [2] Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
    and cleanse me from my sin!
    [3] For I know my transgressions,
    and my sin is ever before me.
    [4] Against thee, thee only, have I sinned,
    and done that which is evil in thy sight,
    so that thou art justified in thy sentence
    and blameless in thy judgment.
    [5] Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity,
    and in sin did my mother conceive me.
    [6] Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward being;
    therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart.
    [7] Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
    wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
    [8] Fill me with joy and gladness;
    let the bones which thou hast broken rejoice.
    [9] Hide thy face from my sins,
    and blot out all my iniquities.
    [10] Create in me a clean heart, O God,
    and put a new and right spirit within me.
    [11] Cast me not away from thy presence,
    and take not thy holy Spirit from me.
    [12] Restore to me the joy of thy salvation,
    and uphold me with a willing spirit.
    [13] Then I will teach transgressors thy ways,
    and sinners will return to thee.
    [14] Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God,
    thou God of my salvation,
    and my tongue will sing aloud of thy deliverance.
    [15] O Lord, open thou my lips,
    and my mouth shall show forth thy praise.
    [16] For thou hast no delight in sacrifice;
    were I to give a burnt offering, thou wouldst not be pleased.
    [17] The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit;
    a broken and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
    [18] Do good to Zion in thy good pleasure;
    rebuild the walls of Jerusalem,
    [19] then wilt thou delight in right sacrifices,
    in burnt offerings and whole burnt offerings;
    then bulls will be offered on thy altar.
