The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

“Let us all rejoice in the Lord, as we celebrate the feast day in honor of the Virgin Mary, at whose Assumption the Angels rejoice and praise the Son of God.”

May we rejoice with the angels as we affirm the truth of the sacred Scripture that, “All generations will call me blessed, for he who is mighty has done great things for me.”

This Titian in the Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari in Venice extols the blessedness of the Virgin Mary.
