Night Adoration in the Home

Mateo Crowley Boevey

In the late 1920's Fr. Mateo Crowley Boevey started the crusade of Nocturnal Adoration, consisting of Holy Hours from 9pm to 6am every night. To help people with these, he prepared a pamphlet of prayers and meditations, which we are bringing back into print. Fr. Mateo advises: "I suggest that you pray for the following intentions during your hour of adoration: our Holy Father the Pope, peace, the clergy, the members of your family who may have gone astray, those in their agony this night, the Social Reign of the Sacred Heart, particularly through the Enthronement of the Sacred Heart in the Home." By decree of April 27, 1929, the Very Reverend Father General of the Franciscan Fathers affiliated the League of Night Adoration to this Order, and granted all Night Adorers participation in its merits. On May 17, 1929, the League of Night Adoration was affiliated to the Franciscan Confraternity of Nocturnal Reparation in Italy. This was ratified by the Sacred Congregation of the Council by a Rescript of April 14, 1930. By virtue of this affiliation, the members of the League can gain the following indulgences. (Note: To gain these indulgences, it is necessary that the name of the Night Adorer be inscribed at a duly authorized Center and that the adoration be made between the hours of 9 and 6, according to the legal time in each locality.) This includes a Plenary Indulgence every time you make the Holy Hour, under the usual conditions. St. Alphonsus writes: "a single bad book will be sufficient to cause the destruction of a monastery." Pope Pius XII wrote in 1947 at the beatification of Blessed Maria Goretti: "There rises to Our lips the cry of the Saviour: 'Woe to the world because of scandals!' (Matthew 18:7). Woe to those who consciously and deliberately spread corruption-in novels, newspapers, magazines, theaters, films, in a world of immodesty!" We at St. Pius X Press are calling for a crusade of good books. We want to restore 1,000 old Catholic books to the market. We ask for your assistance and prayers. This book is a photographic reprint of the original The original has been inspected and many imperfections in the existing copy have been corrected. At Saint Pius X Press our goal is to remain faithful to the original in both photographic reproductions and in textual reproductions that are reprinted. Photographic reproductions are given a page by page inspection, whereas textual reproductions are proofread to correct any errors in reproduction.
