Prayer to Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament
Blessed are you, Mary,
exalted Daughter of Sion!
You are highly favored and full of grace,
for the Spirit of God descended upon you.
We magnify the Lord
and rejoice with you
for the gift of the Word made flesh,
our bread of life and cup of joy.
Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament,
our model of prayer in the Cenacle, pray for us
that we may become what we receive,
the body of Christ your son.
