Assumption of Mary

On the Feast of the Assumption, the Holy Mother Church is pulling aside the curtain and showing us the reward that awaits us at the end of our lives, if we are faithful.

They’re going to come true, and as proof behold your Mother Mary because in her they have already come true.”
