YEAR OF THE PRIEST
May the Virgin Mary, the Woman of the Eucharist, introduce us into the secret
of true adoration. Her humble and simple
heart was ever pondering the mystery of
Jesus, in whom she adored the presence
of God and of His redeeming love. May
faith in the Eucharistic Mystery, joy in participating in Holy Mass, especially on Sundays, and enthusiasm in witnessing to Christ's immense love grow throughout the Church through her intercession.
(Pope Benedict's Angelus 2007)
Let us also, through Mary, Woman of the Eucharist, pray for our Priests.
