On Thursday we celebrate the Feast of the Assumption of Mary, defined by Pope Pius XII in 1950. In the east it was referred to as the Dormition of Mary. For most of us one of our favourite hymns is “Hail Queen of Heaven”. We believe that God would not allow decay to touch Mary’s body, because from her body Christ, “the Author of all life”, was born. In Mary’s Assumption we find hope and pray that heaven might be our final goal and that we will come to share Mary’s glory with the Saints and the angels.
“May my Soul glorify the Lord and my Spirit rejoice in God my Saviour, because he has promised me a share in the divine nature and the gift of eternal life”.
For this Holy Day of Obligation Masses will be at 12.15pm and again at 7.30pm.
