Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary


solemnity,
August 15th



Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.


It was only right that a body so pure that God could deign to become a man in it should not be touched by the corruption of the grave.
~ Alexander de Rouville, The Imitation of Mary
