The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary RSS
Today, we celebrate the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The immaculate Mother of God was assumed into heaven, partaking into the resurrection of Jesus and opening the way for us Christians. Mary is a sign of hope that we will share in the resurrection of Christ. Mary, though sinless, is a human person. She is not divine. Yet God the Father was pleased to raise her from the dead. Mary’s assumption is a reminder that we are called to resurrect with Jesus on the last day. “I will raise you on the last day” John 6:54.
