(St. Vincent Ferrer Parish, NYC)
“O Virgin Immaculate, while the Apostles went to preach the Gospel, thou didst remain close to the Tabernacle, supplicating for them the goodness of the Savior, and thy prayer obtained for them the grace to convert the world! Teach us to pray above all, to pray near the Tabernacle, where Jesus wills to abide continually in order to hear our petitions.
Teach us to pray for the extension of the Eucharistic Kingdom, for the salvation of the whole world, for the exultation of the Holy Church, and most especially for the sanctification of the clergy and the conversion of sinners.”
(From Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament by St. Peter Julian Eymard)
