In this hour, a priest leads the listener in gazing, with eyes of faith, on the pierced Heart of Jesus. It is this pierced Heart that reveals God's love for sinners, in other words it reveals Divine Mercy. The Hour begins with a prayer, such as a Divine Mercy Chaplet, Prayer of Saint Bridgette, or the Way of the Cross. On Sundays, the Stations of the Resurrection, the Via Lucis are broadcast to emphasize each Sunday’s focus on the Resurrection; each Sunday is a little Easter. Monday through Thursday and Saturday, this prayer is followed by meditations on the Lord's Passion, the Hearts of Jesus and Mary and the Mercy of God, drawn from Scripture, papal teaching, the Doctors of the Church, the Fathers of the Church, and the writings of the Saints. The meditations are followed by silence and music to give the listener a sacred space to encounter the merciful love of our crucified and risen Lord.
