Motherly advice times two...

"There are two things I want you to do -  keep close to Our Lord

in the Holy Eucharist... (and) stay close to His Mother.

With those two loves, you will always have the light

to see what is right and what is wrong."- Mother Angelica

In the Salve Regina we 'poor banished children of Eve' hail the New Eve,
mother of the Eucharist, as 'our life, our sweetness and our hope.'
And we implore her to 'show us, after this exile, the blessed fruit' of her womb.
This our heavenly mother will certainly do, lovingly and graciously.
But already here and now, that is, during our exile in this 'vale of tears,'
she untiringly shows us the blessed fruit of her womb
integrally present in the sacrament of the altar.
As His handmaid and herald she urges us to draw ever closer to Him.
For not only is He the source of life and holiness;
He is the pledge and pattern of our bodily resurrection
when the new world finally dawns." - Fr. Richard Foley, S.J.
