Holy Hour of Reparation

Friday, January 5, 2024

The First Friday of each month immediately following the

12:10 Mass in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel

Jesus implores us to stay, watch, and pray with Him, just as He did to His apostles: "My soul is sorrowful even unto death. Stay you here and watch with Me (Matthew 26:38)." Jesus told St. Margaret Mary to "make reparation for the ingratitude of men. Spend an hour in prayer to appease divine justice, to implore mercy for sinners, to honor Me, to console Me for My bitter suffering when abandoned by My apostles, when they did not watch one hour with me."

During this holy hour of reparation before the Blessed Sacrament, we will pray a Spiritual Communion, Acts of Reparation and Consecration to the Sacred Heart, and preparation for a Happy Death. Holy Hour of Reparation is a devotion much needed by our world today, amid its tragedies and sin.

The Cathedral Brown Bag Lunch Ministry is pleased to announce that, for the third consecutive year, the Rotary Club of South Sacramento (RCSS) has presented a Grant Award to the BBL!

RCSS supports many diverse community services programs throughout the greater Sacramento area. The BBL is honored to be recognized for its continued service to the downtown Sacramento poor and homeless community and to be among the diverse group of 2023 RCSS award recipients.  Our heartfelt thanks to RCSS for the generous award of $1,500 and for its compassion for those in need.

In addition to the RCSS grant award, BBL volunteers would like to thank our monthly and constant supporters who repeatedly give of their time, talent, and treasure.  You remain a blessing to BBL.  Many thanks also to parishioners, students, families and individuals who lovingly, and generously, donate lunches, water, and other lunch supplies to BBL.  During the month of November 2023, all these kind acts of charity allowed BBL volunteers to distribute 2,300 lunches to our downtown brothers and sisters.
