"He took flesh from the flesh of Mary . . . and gave us the same flesh to be eaten unto salvation. . . . We do sin by not adoring" (ibid).

~~ St. Augustine


I thought about this before when receiving Holy Communion. We also receive Mary as we receive Jesus, Flesh form her flesh.
I wonder what theologians say about this?.

This reminds me of an old article I read about how a mother and her child share DNA, and a child can even change the mother's DNA, and I believe the shared cells persist for life..

Hmm. I must find this article.

Mothers will love to read it.

When I steeped myself in prayer,
I was transported in spirit to the Chapel, where I saw the Lord Jesus, exposed in the Monstrance.
In place of the Monstrance I saw the glorious face of the Lord, and He said to me,
"What you see in reality , these souls see through faith.
 Oh, how pleasing to Me is their great faith!
You see, although there appears to be no trace of life in Me,
 in reality it is present in its fullness in each and every Host.
But for Me to be able to act upon the soul, the soul must have faith.
O how pleasing to Me is living faith!"

St. Faustina, Divine Mercy in my Soul.
