Every year we celebrate the ASSUMPTION of our Blessed Mother on August 15th. On this day we recall that Mama Mary, at the end of her life on earth was ASSUMED into heaven body and soul. This year, the Solemnity of Mary’s ASSUMPTION is not a Holy Day of obligation. Nevertheless, the ASSUMPTION is a great reminder of our ultimate destiny as God’s children, that like our Blessed Mother, we too will one day live in God’s Glory in the eternal Kingdom body and soul.
