Feast of the Assumption of Mary

Posted by Thomas More College on 15 August 2017
Feast of the Assumption of Mary

Today we as Catholics, we celebrate together a Holy day of Obligation with the feast of the Assumption of Mary.

The Assumption signals the end of Mary's earthly life and marks her return to heaven to be reunited with Jesus. While the bodies of both Jesus and Mary are now in heaven, there is a difference between the Assumption and the Resurrection. Where Jesus arose from the tomb and ascended into heaven by his own power, Mary's body was taken up to heaven by the power of her Son.
