08/02/2022 – St Peter Julian Eymard
Today is the feast of the “Apostle of the Eucharist” St Peter Julian Eymard.
It should not surprise us that he, the great promoter of Eucharistic Adoration, was a devotee of the Holy Rosary. He realised that wherever Jesus is Mary is. And that Mary was the first Tabernacle.He taught, “Honor in Mary, at the foot of the Tabernacle, all the mysteries of her life, for all these were stations as it were.leading to the Cenacle (Upper Room of the Last Supper and of Pentecost) “
“Eucharistic adoration is the greatest of actions. To adore is to share the life of Mary on earth when she adored the Word Incarnate in her virginal womb, when she adored Him in the Crib, on Calvary, in the divine Eucharist.”
“The Eucharist began at Bethlehem in Mary’s arms. It was she who brought to humanity the Bread for which it was famishing, and which alone can nourish it. She was the one who, took care of that Bread for us. It was she who nourished the Lamb whose life-giving flesh we feed upon.”Today when you pray your rosary, ask St Peter Julian to show you the Eucharistic Presence of Jesus in every Rosary mystery.
