This past Thursday, August 15, was the celebration of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. We celebrated how the sinless Virgin Mary was taken body and soul to be with God our Father in Heaven.
Mary was a true example for all of us of faith in God and obedience to following God’s Will. The faith-filled Virgin Mary was chosen by God to bring Jesus our Savior into the world, without losing her virginity. Because Mary said “yes” to God, we can receive the gift of eternal life.
The Lord asks us to love God and to love our neighbor as ourselves. By practicing our faith, in our love for God and one another, we’re following Mary’s example of faith in God and obedience to following God’s Will.
Sincerely in Christ,
