“Our Lord feared that men, not knowing how to find and adore Him in His Sacrament, would become discouraged and would forget Him. The child, as we know, does not search long for something he wants; if he does not find it at once, he gives up and seeks something else.
This is what our Lord feared for us: so He left us His Mother, whose mission it should be to take us by the hand and lead us to His Tabernacle. The Blessed Virgin then, became our Mother, in view of the Eucharist. To her is entrusted the task of showing us how to find our Bread of Life, of making us appreciate and desire that Heavenly Food; it is her mission to form us for adoration.”
(From Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament by St. Peter Julian Eymard)
