August 15, 2015 (Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary)

Something happens to MARY that is astonishing. She is assumed body and soul to be with her Son in heaven. What happened to MARY we look forward to happening to us at the end of the world. We say it every time we recite the Nicene Creed: “The Resurrection of the body and life everlasting.” We want to be where Mary is now. This is a Feast of hope. “Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of our death. Amen.”
