From the Hymn AKATHISTOS to the Mother of God:
"Rejoice, supplication before the Righteous Judge:
Rejoice, forgiveness of many sins!
Rejoice, robe of boldness for the naked:
Rejoice, love that doth vanquish all desire!
Rejoice, Virgin and Spouse!"
From the saints:
"The flesh of Christ is the flesh of Mary." (St. Augustine)
Today, turn your gaze toward the Blessed Sacrament. With our gaze fixed on Him we can think of the words of the Ave Verum: “Ave Verum Corpus natum ex Maria Virgine.” The same Body born of the Virgin Mary is present in the Eucharist. What mystery! Take a moment to contemplate this great mystery, the Real Presence of Christ in the Most Holy Eucharist.
Today go to Mass in thanksgiving for such a great gift, and during Holy Communion ask Our Lady to help you receive the Lord with a heart like unto hers.
