Abbe Perdrau...The Mary Month of May

The Abbe Perdreau and the Mary Month of May
"The thought of Mary and of the Eucharist easily unite; they are connected with each other, so to speak, and are convertible terms. It is Mary who offers us the Divine Infant of Bethlehem; at the foot of the cross she presents us with the dead body of Jesus swathed in its shroud; at the Altar she gives it to us again enveloped in the Eucharistic linens.

"Is this not what the Church of God is thinking when it authorises us to chant before the Blessed Sacrament the beautiful sequence AVE VERUM: I salute thee, O Body, truly born of the Virgin Mary! Thus, at the moment when Jesus emerges from his tabernacle, the memory of Mary is revived in our souls, Mary appears to us like the monstrance in which the Saviour's Body shines. In fact, the Sacred Host is a present from the Blessed Virgin. S Augustine says so in four oft-quoted words: CARO IESU, CARO MARIAE ... The flesh of Jesus is the flesh of Mary. This Body, this Blood of Christ which upon the Altar becomes our food and drink, derive their origin from Mary. It is the substance of Mary which has become the substance of Jesus. Mary is one of the principal constituents of the Blessed Sacrament; she contributes thereto as the grain of wheat that is sown produces the ear of corn which itself forms the harvest."

I think this meditation above is relevant to the other Marian thread posted by tornpage concerning the necessity of Mary unto salvation.
(http://catholicforum.forumotion.com/t286-the-necessity-of-the-blessed-mother-in-the-economy-of-salvation)

Upon reflection, it seems that Her entire earthly life was one big intercessory act on all counts. Moving to Her heavenly reign, Her intercession has not ceased, but has been added to with a new role of mediation, i.e., the Mediatrix of God's grace. So, the question before us is whether She is necessary unto salvation. To humbly reflect on Her earthly life, and heavenly mediation is to answer the question in the affirmative. It seems utterly rude to consider otherwise.

For our part though, do we owe Her anything out of necessity?
