This devotion developed from the custom of keeping vigil in a chapel where the Blessed Sacrament was reserved during the time between the Maundy Thursday Mass of the Lord’s Supper and the Good Friday Liturgy. These reflections can be used to guide your prayer as part of a watch during those profound and holy hours. At other times, they can be used as a form of prayer in the presence of the Sacrament. It can be a time of worship and adoration with meditation on this aspect of our Lord’s Passion, or it can be a way of working toward that simple but demanding prayer, “Thy will be done.”
