Preparation Week - Day 3
"AND DEVOTION TO OUR LADY OF THE MOST BLESSED SACRAMENT WILL GROW WITH THE WORSHIP OF THE EUCHARIST"
Preparatory Meditations Eymard Library Pages 5-6
"I have not found this devotion treated of in any work; nor have I ever heard it spoken of except in the Revelations of Mother Mary of Jesus, where I read something about Mary's Communions; and again, in the Acts of the Apostles, where we find our Lady in the Cenacle."
In the preparatory mediation it is good to not pass over these words without the reality of what is being told to us by St. Peter Julian. Mary after the Crucifixion lived for many years ( some twenty years after. ) The cenacle of her heart was created upon her FIAT, her YES at the Annunciation. Her own reception of Holy Communion kept the cenacle alive past the sorrow of the memory of Calvary. Until the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven the Apostles, St. John celebrated Holy Mass where Mary would receive JESUS in the Blessed Sacrament.
"She was the Mother and Queen of adorers. She was in a word, Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament."
Please recite the Veni Creator with the specific intention to EMPTY THYSELF.
COME, O Creator Spirit blest,
And in our souls take up Thy rest,
Come with Thy grace and Heavenly aid,
To fill the hearts which Thou hast made.
Great Paraclete! To Thee we cry,
O highest gift of God most high!
O fount of life! O fire of love!
And sweet anointing from above.
Thou in Thy sevenfold gifts art known,
The finger of God's hand we own;
The promise of the Father, Thou!
Who dost the tongue with power endow.
Kindle our senses from above,
And make our hearts over flow with love;
With patience firm and virtues high,
The weakness of our flesh supply.
Far from us drive the foe we dread,
And grant us Thy true peace instead;
So shall we not, with Thee for guide,
Turn from the path of life aside.
And, may Thy grace on us bestow
The Father and the Son to know,
And Thee through endless times confessed
Of both the Eternal Spirit blest.
All glory while the ages run
Be to the Father and the Son
Who rose from death; the same to Thee,
O Holy Spirit, eternally. Amen.
