THE ASSUMPTION OF MARY (Sun 15th)
There was a solid and deep-rooted conviction among the first Christians that something extraordinary had happened to Our Lady at the moment of her departure from this life. This found expression in writings, sermons, devotional practices, and prayers to Mary “assumed into heaven”, with churches, religious orders, cities and nations dedicated or consecrated to her under the title of Assumption.
