Today we celebrate the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This ancient feast calls the Christian community together in praising the Lord for the honor he bestowed upon Mary when she became Mother of the Word Incarnate. Mary is the perfect disciple who followed her Son as he preached God’s mercy. She is the image of the Church at prayer.
