Recovery of the Sacred – A Key Analysis of Liturgy Reform Now Online.
Mysterium fidei! If the Eucharist is a mystery of faith which so greatly transcends our understanding
as to call for sheer abandonment to the word of God, then there can be no one like Mary to act as our support and guide in acquiring this disposition.… At the Annunciation Mary conceived the Son of God in the physical reality of His body and blood, thus anticipating within herself what to some degree happens sacramentally in every believer who receives, under the signs of bread and wine, the Lord’s body and blood.
As a result, there is a profound analogy between the Fiat which Mary said in reply to the angel, and the Amen which every believer says when receiving the body of the Lord.… In continuity with the Virgin’s faith, in the
Eucharistic mystery we are asked to believe that the same Jesus Christ, Son of God and Son of Mary, becomes present in His full humanity and divinity under the signs of bread and wine.
— Blessed Pope John Paul II
