The Solemnity of the Assumption
of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Not a Holy Day of Obligation this Year since it falls on Saturday. Then again, Sundays have not been Holy Days of Obligation for most of this year anyway.
Assumption of the Virgin
Francesco Albani (1578-1660)
Almighty everlasting God, who hast taken body and soul into heaven the Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of Thy Son: grant, we beseech Thee, that by steadfastly keeping heaven as our goal we may be counted worthy to join her in glory. Through the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord who lives and reigns with Thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever.
Fr. Christopher J. Pollard
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another;
even as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
By this all men will know that you are my disciples,
if you have love for one another.” JN 13:34-35
