The 8th of December is
an important day - the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. It is
also the day on which in 1947 Our Blessed Mother gave us the Hour
Our Lady said as
follows: "It is my wish that every year, on 8th December, 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 home, he will also receive graces through
me.... will find a secure heavenly ladder and receive protection and
grace through my motherly heart."
Our Lady promised she will hear any
prayer we make at this time.
THE REQUEST OF OUR BLESSED MOTHER FOR THE HOUR OF GRACE:
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.
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).
Begin the Hour of Grace by
praying three times the 51st Psalm with out-stretched arms.
(Psalm 51 appears below).
The rest of the Hour of Grace
may be spent in silent communication with God meditating upon
the Passion of Jesus, saying 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 yours.
Have mercy on on me, God, in your goodness; in your abundant
compassion blot out my offence.
Wash away all my guilt; from my sin cleanse me.
For I know my offence; my sin is always before me.
Against you alone have I sinned; I have done such evil in
your sight that you are just in your sentence, blameless
when you condemn.
True, I was born guilty, a sinner, even as my mother
Still, you insist on sincerity of heart; in my innermost
being teach me wisdom.
Cleanse me with hyssop, that I may be pure; wash me, make me
whiter than snow.
Let me hear sounds of joy and gladness; let the bones you
have crushed rejoice.
Turn away your face from my sins; blot out all my guilt.
A clean heart create for me, God; renew in me a steadfast
Do not drive me from your presence, nor take from me your
Restore my joy in your salvation; sustain in me a willing
I will teach the wicked your ways, that sinners may return
Rescue me from death, God, my saving God, that my tongue may
praise your healing power.
Lord, open my lips; my mouth will proclaim your praise.
For you do not desire sacrifice; a burnt offering you would
My sacrifice, God, is a broken spirit; God, do not spurn a
broken, humbled heart.
Make Zion prosper in your good pleasure; rebuild the walls
Then you will be pleased with proper sacrifice, burnt
offerings and holocausts; then bullocks will be offered on
