A great sign appeared in the heavens: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon was under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.  – Rev 12:1

Reflection. The Assumption of Mary is a wonderful feast day for the Church.  We celebrate her glory in heaven.  Jesus brought Mary home to honor her for her role in the Redemption of the human family.

Prayer. Dear Mary, teach me to say yes to my calling as you did to yours.  Pray for me now and at the hour of my death.
