St Peter Julian Eymard's Words:
“Jesus led His Mother by the hand up to the throne of God. ‘Behold, O Father, her with whom You are associated, by choosing her to give Me My Humanity!’ —And the Father crowned her with her three most beautiful titles, Queen, Mother, Mediatrix. In Mary's diadem, three pearls are shining with dazzling brightness, namely, that of her humility, that of her poverty, and that of her sufferings.” 
"THE tendency of love-----its final tendency-----is the union of two beings who love each other, the fusion of two into one, of two hearts into one heart, of two minds into one mind, of two souls into one soul. …We abide in Him, He abides in us. We are one with Him until the ineffable union that was begun here below by grace and perfected by the Eucharist is consummated in Heaven in an eternal and glorious union. Love lives therefore with Jesus present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. It shares all that belongs to Jesus. It is one with Jesus. The demands of our heart are satisfied; it cannot ask for anything else." 
The mystery of the Coronation of Mary speaks to us of eternal happiness. At the end of her earthly life, God gave Mary her reward: she will forever remain by her Son as Queen of Heaven and earth. When we receive and adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament in the company of Mary, we have with us a Mother, Queen, and Mediatrix, who will always lead us to Christ. “Mary, the exalted Daughter of Sion, helps all her children, wherever they may be and whatever their condition, to find in Christ the path to the Father's house.”  This path to Heaven is found in the Eucharist, where love lives, and fulfills all the desires of our hearts.
Mary’s diadems’ “three dazzling pearls” shine for us to see and imitate, as they light up the way for us to follow. The first two reflect the virtues of Our Lord’s poverty and humility in the Eucharist, and the third one, that of her sufferings, reminds us that she shares so closely in His glory now in Heaven because she shared so closely in His sufferings on earth. We can see that these pearls do not shine on their own, but reflect the light from the Monstrance. In that Monstrance is Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament, the One we have been looking for, the One who will satisfy the demands of our hearts.
It is there our quest must end. “When he finds a pearl of great price, he goes and sells all that he has and buys it.” (Mat 13:46) We must let go of anything that divides our hearts, for the price for this pearl is our whole hearts. Love dwelling in the Blessed Sacrament calls “Arise, my friend, my beautiful one, and come!” (Song 2:10), for the final tendency of love is the union of two souls. This union “perfected by the Eucharist” will satisfy our hearts until that final day when we say, “Before I knew it, my desire had made me the blessed one of the prince’s people.” (Song 6:12)
When you meditate on the mystery of the Coronation of Mary, look at the virtues in her diadem as they reflect the light of the Monstrance. In that light, see which areas of your heart you still need to open to the Love of God.
