On the Feast of the Assumption of Mary, we commemorate the bodily assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven because she was conceived without sin. This is because no corruption would ever touch her body since her soul was uniquely preserved from Original Sin by the grace that she was to be the Mother of God by giving birth to Jesus Christ.
There come certain times in history when we start to look at things differently because of extraordinary events. This COVID-19 experience is one of those times when we begin to remember things that occurred before the pandemic and think of what might be after the pandemic.

Without this, we cannot be prepared someday to give our lives back to God. Our union today predicts how close our union will be at the time of our death.
