Today is the Feast of the Assumption.  Our Development Director shared this on our social media so I thought it would be nice to share it on our blog.  Happy Feast of the Assumption.

Mary, Mother of God, pray for us.

Mary’s Assumption is the preview of God’s promise of salvation to the Faithful. It asserts that the souls of those who will be saved shall one day, after the end of the world, be reunited with their bodies and live forever with God, just as Mary is in Heaven now with both her body and soul.

It was Mary who first shared in the fruit of the Risen Jesus. She was assumed into Heaven even before the end of the world since she was the most united with Our Lord in His life, Passion, Death and Resurrection.

Just imagine the joy Mary must have felt when she realizes God’s love for her. This light and happiness carried Mary through all of her sorrows. She never fails to be a perfect example of how to bring love and joy into the darkest places. In our struggles, we, like Mary, can find the light of Christ in order to persevere.

Mary understood what it meant to do the will of God. We are called to imitate Mary as we try to spread God’s message and carry His love to all. Just as Mary radiated her son’s light and love, we are each called to emulate her and bring that joy into the world and shine with the fire of Christ’s love.
