Holy Saturday April 11, 1846 Saint Peter Julian Eymard to Miss Marguerite Guillot:
"I said that you would take the Blessed Virgin as your guardian and teacher. Do so in order to resemble your good mother and through her resemble Jesus her divine Son, whose perfect copy she is. In this way you will imitate Jesus in Mary. Become a true daughter of Mary. Live in her heart more than in your own. You will find the adorable Heart of Jesus in her pure and virginal heart, three hearts in one. Tomorrow your tears will cease. And so, may God be Praised!" 
Two days before on Holy Thursday, April 9th, 1846 Saint Peter Julian told Mother Marguerite: " It's understood that when we vow ourselves to the Queen of Heaven and earth in this manner, it is forever."
Although the early years Saint Peter Julian surely held his own words close to his heart in that his relationship with our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament would be FOREVER. Through his own Eucharistic journey. through his disappointments and trials Mary was the guide to Saint Peter Julian's every resurrection. The deep recesses of our own souls hope in the one who died for us, who remains with us in the Blessed Sacrament.
For those who have consecrated their lives to Jesus Christ through our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament we have a faithful responsibility to uphold. To be faithful adores of Jesus Christ remembering Saint Peter Julian teaches us it is FOREVER! We enter the tombs of our own hearts triumphing by the hope that will be given to us once again at the Easter Vigil. By our own freedom we live as witnesses to the truth, in all circumstances. God is calling out for LOVE from the tomb. Through our own pains may our hearts grasp the innate response to give, to serve, to adore and love in return of all that has been given to us. May we resemble our Mother in her Son, reassured that our tears will cease, and our faithfulness will live Forever!
Every Saturday we honor the mother of God. Holy Saturday all the more we stand with Mary. Through the agony of sin and suffering she intensely witnessed Mary was assured the triumph of God.
On Holy Saturday, we wait with the beloved of God. We wait with the faithful adorers who have gone before us. We behold our Mother and wait for the vigil of God's love to light the world.
On Holy Saturday we remember Christ in the tomb. We are secured in our Mother's love, we wait with her to zealously proclaim the Eucharistic Kingdom on earth. "”MAY GOD BE PRAISED!"
