Blessed Mother: Perfect Adorer of the Most Blessed Sacrament

"Mary's adoration was profound, interior, intimate.
It was the gift of herself.
She offered her whole self to the service of love of the Eucharistic God.
For love lays down no conditions, makes no reservations;
it thinks no longer of self, lives no longer for self;
it is a stranger to itself and lives only for the God which it loves.

Everything in Mary was directed to the Blessed Sacrament
as Its center and end.
A current of grace and love established itself
between the Heart of Jesus-Hostia and the heart of Mary-Adoratrix.
These hearts were like two flames blended into one.
God was then perfectly adored by His creature."

~ St. Peter Julian Eymard ~
