The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Holy Day of Obligation – Wednesday, August 15
Mass Times – 8:30 AM, 12 NOON, 7 PM
“This solemnity celebrates the bodily taking up of the Blessed Virgin Mary into heaven at the end of her earthly life. This doctrine was dogmatically defined in 1950 by Pope Pius XII, but accounts of the assumption of Mary into heaven survive in apocryphal narratives from the third and fourth centuries. Celebrated as early as the fifth century, this feast became official in the ninth century, with the additions of a vigil and octave feast.” Source: Living With Christ (August 2018)
“Never be afraid of loving the Blessed Virgin too much.
You can never love her more than Jesus did.”
—Saint Maximilian Kolbe
