7 Reflections to Calm Your Heart at Holy Hour

By pintswaquinas May 14, 2024

We live in an age dominated by fear and anxiety, and it is destroying us. Granted, we can’t wholly avoid the troubles around us as long as we live in this vale of tears. But we can’t let them consume our lives.

Now more than ever, we need the strength and peace that comes from the Holy Eucharist. If more people would take the time to make a Holy Hour at least once a week, many things would change for the better!

Sometimes it can be hard to still our souls in Jesus’ presence. To help, here are seven passages to reflect on during your Holy Hour. Share them with family and friends!

Locals with Matt Fradd Pints with Aquinas

Psalm 46:10
“Be still and know that I am God.”

St. Padre Pio
“Often place your confidence in Divine Providence and be assured that sooner heaven and earth shall pass away than that the Lord neglects to protect you.…My past, O Lord, to your Mercy; my present, to your Love; my future, to your Providence!”

St. Francis de Sales
“Do not look forward to what may happen tomorrow; the same everlasting Father who cares for you today will take care of you tomorrow and every day. Either He will shield you from suffering or He will give you unfailing strength to bear it. Be at peace, then put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations.…”

John 14:1-4, 18-20
“Let not your hearts be troubled; believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And when I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way where I am going.…I will not leave you desolate; I will come to you. Yet a little while and the world will see me no more, but you will see me; because I live, you will live also. In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you”

Luke 12:22-25
“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat, nor about your body, what you shall put on. For life is more than food and the body more than clothing. Consider the ravens: They neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds! And which of you by being anxious can add a cubit to his span of life?”

Jesus to St. Faustina
“All grace flows from mercy and the last hour abounds with mercy for us. Let no one doubt concerning the goodness of God; even if a person’s sins were as dark as night, God’s mercy is stronger than our misery. One thing alone is necessary; that the sinner set ajar the door of his heart, be it ever so little, to let in a ray of God’s merciful grace and then God will do the rest.”

St. Teresa of Avila
“Let nothing disturb you. Let nothing frighten you. All things are passing away: God never changes. Patience obtains all things. Whoever has God lacks nothing; God alone suffices.
