Malta Minute with the Catechism: The Prayer of the Hour of Jesus

  • Program #: 242
  • Description: The prayer of the hour of Jesus is an extraordinary prayer, states the Catholic Catechism. It is the longest prayer recorded in the Gospels that Jesus offers to his Father. He prays it as he is facing the hour of his Passion. The Catechism claims the prayer embraces the whole economy of creation and salvation as well as Jesus’ death and Resurrection. It always remains his own prayer just as his “Passover”...”once for all... remains always present in the liturgy of his Church.” In this paschal and sacrificial prayer - also known as Jesus’ priestly prayer-everything is concisely reviewed and summarized in Christ: God and the world, the Word and the flesh, eternal life and time, the love that hands itself over and the sin that betrays it. Jesus fulfilled the work of the Father completely. His prayer, like his sacrifice extends until the end of time. This is Peggy Stanton and this has been the Order of Malta's Minute with the Catechism.
