Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

assumptionIn her glory she proclaims the greatness of the Lord and finds joy in God her savior. God has done marvels to her and she leads others to recognize God’s holiness. She is the lowly handmaid who deeply reverenced her God and has been raised to the heights. From her position of strength she will help the lowly and the poor find justice on earth, and she will challenge the rich and powerful to distrust wealth and power as a source of happiness.


 

Do not let your hearts be troubled.
Believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places.
If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?

jesus1

And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself,
so that where I am, there you may be also.  (John 14:1-3)
