Mary, the first Tabernacle of Christ

"María, Madre de la Eucaristía", Raúl Berzosa

"In that chaste Parent's holy womb celestial grace hath found its home: and she, as earthly bride unknown, yet calls that Offspring Blest her own. The mansion of her modest breast becomes a shrine where God shall rest: the pure and undefiled one, conceived in her womb the Son."

-- Hymn 16 (stanzas 3-4), "The Hymns of the Dominican Missal and Breviary" (1943), p. 65 H/T Matthew Olson
