Son and Mother

“…Mary spent days and nights in the presence of the Divine Eucharist. That was her favorite dwelling place; for her beloved Jesus lived and reigned there. What a sweet and pleasant association of Son and Mother. Without the Eucharist, Mary could not have lived here below; with it, life was pleasant for her; she possessed Jesus; her state of life, her mission was adoration. The…years she spent in the Cenacle were like the twenty-four hours of the day; she spent them in the habitual exercise of adoration.

(St. Peter Julian Eymard from A Eucharistic Handbook)
