On August 15th we will celebrate the Feast of the Assumption of Mary. A Holy Day of Obligation for the Catholic Faithful. This feast day was put in place on November 1, 1950, when Pope Pius XII defined the Assumption of Mary to be a dogma of faith: “We pronounce, declare and define it to be a divinely revealed dogma that the immaculate Mother of God, the ever Virgin Mary, having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul to heavenly glory.” This proclamation came after extensive consultation and reflected the belief already present in the faithful.
From as early as the sixth century there is evidence of the belief in the Assumption of Mary and this long standing recognition of the many blessings enjoyed by the Virgin Mary provides a beautiful opportunity for us to reflect on the plan God had for Mary in our redemption through her son Jesus.
