Millennial Missionaries

This chapter studies FOCUS missionaries’ daily Holy Hour and argues that this particular prayer discipline shapes how Catholic millennials become missionaries who are willing to evangelize college students every single day. Missionaries pray at the intersection of religious experience, religious practice, social context, bodily comportment, and interior processes. Daily Holy Hour involves Adoration, mental prayer, lectio divina, intercessory prayer, and spiritual reading. With each prayer form, millennials enact the mundane work of trying to become twenty-first century Catholic missionaries. These prayer practices—updated, remixed, and reclaimed for a new generation of Catholics—were the way these millennials articulated and embodied their Catholic identity.

Keywords:   Holy Hour, Adoration, relationship with Jesus, lectio divina, spiritual reading, Catholic prayer, real presence
