If you’ve ever wondered what The Assumption of Mary is and why it’s important that it is a holy day of obligation in the Church…prepare to have those questions answered by Fr. Chas in this brief homily.
By Our Lady’s assumption into heaven, Mary reveals to us our own destiny to live eternally with God. Although we may not enjoy the same direct path she took, bypassing death and purgatory, we will come to be in the same place, beyond corruption, resting in the full glory of God.
Listen and see how Mary lived the truth of Jesus’ word and humbled herself to our Lord’s will. Joined to Jesus in our baptism, we share Mary as our Mother and as Mother of the entire Church. Let us join together in the hope of what this feast day reveals to us, our own hope of eternal life through Jesus Christ.
