Domina nostra Sanctissimi Sacramenti

Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament, Pray for us!

Today is the feast of the Virgin Mary under this amazing title. It reminds us that she gave her flesh to Jesus, who gives His flesh to us as spiritual food in the Holy Eucharist.

St. Peter Julian Eymard, founder of the Blessed Sacrament Fathers (SSS), wrote:

If we belong to the Son, we belong to the Mother; if we adore the Son, we ought to honor the Mother: therefore we are obliged...to give very special honor to the Blessed Virgin under the title of Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament.

Hail, Mary, of whom was born Jesus Eucharistic!
