"When you listen to a beautiful love song, do you examine each word? And if some lyrics manifest a pathos or a joy that goes beyond your own, do you turn down the volume, not to hear the melody? I doubt it. For those of us nowhere near the height or depth of Venerable Conchita’s union with Jesus, there may be a moment when listening to her love song that we want to close the book because the pathos and joy of it is above and deeper than our own level. Yet we find that we can’t drop it. Meditative reading of Holy Hours speaks to a place in our hearts we don’t always want to go. Why? Perhaps because there is a part of us that does not want to be too intimate with Jesus. Conchita’s spirituality is precisely a proof of the depth we all could go in experiencing the love of Jesus were we to surrender totally." — From the Preface by Ronda Chervin

About the Author: The Servant of God, Concepción Cabrera de Armida, better known as Conchita, was born in San Luis Potosi on December 8, 1862 and died in Mexico, D.F. on March 3, 1937. Her love for Jesus Crucified present in the Eucharist led her to pen these brief meditations. Wife, mother, foundress, and lay apostle, the cause for her beatification is well under way today. Along with Holy Hours, Alba House has also published these works of hers: Seasons of the Soul (2005), A Mother’s Letters (2004), and I Am: Eucharistic Meditations on the Gospel (2001). Other works inspired by her also published by Alba House include Conchita by M.M. Philipon, OP (1978) and Irresistibly Drawn to the Eucharist: Conchita Cabrera de Armida’s Most Beautiful Writings on the Eucharist (2002) edited by Fr. Juan Gutierrez Gonzalez, M.Sp.S.
