The truth is that Mary's whole role in the Church is to lead us to her Divine Son. Neglect her; then the surest, quickest and easiest way to her Divine Son is cancelled out. Ignore the Woman of Faith and our faith in the Real Presence will falter and fail as it has among our Protestant separated brethren, and now even among many Catholics who obviously do not believe that God is present in the Eucharist since they show our Lord little or no respect and reverence.
The inseparable bond that exists between Mary and the Eucharist is brought out in many ways. But for the sake of simplicity, let us lightly touch upon three major categories, namely, the Church, the lives of the Saints and the Marian shrines.
