The Assumption Of Our Blessed Mother



The Feast of the Assumption

The Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Mother is August 15th. The Assumption is also lnown as Mary's Dormition (falling asleep)

The death of The Blessed Mother is uncertain including the day and manner. The time of her death varies from anywhere between three and five years from Jesus Christ Ascension into heaven. Jerusalem lays claim to where she has died as well as Ephesus.
Mary was also believed to have died in the presence of the Apostles, but the tomb when opened by St. Thomas found that it was empty.

The Catholic Church teaches authoritatively that it is not just Mary’s soul that was admitted to God’s glory, but that at the end of her earthly life, Mary’s body as well as her soul was assumed into heaven by the loving power of God.

There is also some belief that Our Lady had never actually died, but was taken directly to heaven both body and soul

Tradition teaches that she did die and was then assumed into heaven body and soul

Today is a Holy Day Of Obligation. May we remember The Blessed Mary Ever Virgin on this her day when she is reuinted again with her Son in heaven. Hail Mary Full OfGrace!
