The reason for Last Hours, was that after sitting with a dying friend for days, with no prayerbook at hand that had appropriate prayers for just that occasion, it was thought to pull together all the prayers for the sick and dying from the Raccolta and other Catholic prayer books having an Imprimatur. The prayers in this book all have an imprimatur as they come from a Raccolta or prayerbook having an imprimatur. The people who have used the book have told us personally that it was a God-send for them. That is was gold. We have been personally given these kind of reviews. The book not only gave great relief to the patient, but those praying with them were affected in a holy manner by the prayers and sentiments it contained. It was put together for the purpose of readying the soul to meet its Maker - but it is also hoped to be salvific for whoever uses or reads it. St. Joseph was prayed to while putting it together, and it was dedicated to him. This is not a money-maker. There are not tons of copies. But it is useful perhaps particularly now, with people stranded without priests, or even for people who do not know what to do when sickness or death comes - this seems to give guidance. It seemed the thing to do to let people to know it was out there.
