Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament, pray for us!
May 13 @ 6:58 pm
The Sisters invite all mothers to celebrate ourcommunity’s patronal feast honoring Mary as Mother of the Eucharist in a special way. Today, we recall Mary’s own motherhood to Jesus, Whose same Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity we adore and receive in the Holy Eucharist.
As we approach the end of the Easter season, we are mindful that Christ’s whole Person ascended into Heaven, where His Sacred Heart and Mary’s Immaculate Heart beat, wildly in love with us. We invite you to contemplate, with us and with Our Lady, this wondrous mystery:
O Virgin Immaculate, who after the Ascension of thy Divine Son
consoled thy exile on earth by the Real Presence of Jesus in the Sacrament,
and spent before the tabernacle the greater part of thy days and even thy nights,
make us comprehend the treasure we possess on the altar.
Inspire us to often visit the God of Love in the Sacrament in which He abides
to receive the homage that He deserves by so many titles
and to guide, protect and console us in this exile!
(Excerpt from the Novena to Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament)
Pray for us, O Virgin Immaculate, Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament, that the Eucharistic Kingdom of Jesus Christ may come among us!
