Prayer to Mary while adoring Jesus in the Eucharist

MARY EUCHARIST

Philip Kosloski - published on 07/19/21

The Virgin Mary remains the prime example of how to adore Jesus in the Eucharist.

The Virgin Mary was privileged above all saints to hold within herself, Jesus, the Son of God. In this way she was a living Tabernacle of God and lovingly adored Jesus in her womb, but also after birth.

Her example of adoring love inspired St. Peter Julian Eymard to call her “Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament,” composing various prayers and reflections with her in mind.

Here is one of his prayers that asks for Mary’s help in adoring our Lord, as she adored her Son.

O Mary, teach us the life of adoration! Teach us to find, as thou didst, all mysteries and all graces in the Eucharist, to live the Gospel over again, and to read it in the Eucharistic Life of Jesus! Re member, Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament, that thou art the Mother of all adorers of the Holy Eucharist.

Thou art blessed among women, Mary, and blessed is our Eu charistic Jesus, the fruit of thy womb!
