The Assumption of the BV Mary – 2017


“Let us all rejoice in the Lord, as we celebrate the feast day in honor of the Virgin Mary”


Mary raised up to heaven is an image of the fullness of our humanity – deified and shown in all its dignity and beauty. For this we are created and this is our destination, though the way may seem long and difficult.

But let us look at Mary. Although she was conceived as immaculate, in her humanity she was ground by suffering so that her likeness to God – manifested in a perfect union with Him in love – may reach its fullness. Our troubles and difficulties have the same task – to bring our likeness to God to perfection.

Mary have already mastered her road and is for us - who are still on the way: suffering, falling down and fighting for our trust in God to the end - the example of how to do it and a great help so that we will not give up.

Thanking for this great sign of hope – the Assumpted Mary – let us pray through her intercession that being persistent in our conversion and in doing good, we may reach our heavenly and eternal homeland.
