The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Mary set out and traveled to the hill country.

Today we celebrate the truth that Mary, body and soul, has joined her son, Jesus, in heaven. For centuries, this belief had been a beloved tradition, but it hadn’t yet been defined by the Church as revealed dogma. That didn’t happen until 1950 when Pope Pius XII declared her assumption to be an official teaching of the Church. That declaration was the fruit of years of work as the Holy Spirit guided Church leaders and theologians to a deeper and clearer understanding of Mary’s role in the Scriptures.

The Holy Spirit was an intimate and guiding force in Mary’s own life as well. Imagine Mary, a teenager, having to explain an unexpected pregnancy to her parents, to Joseph, and to her neighbors. We might expect her to act as any typical teenager would: isolate herself, panic over the way her life has just been turned upside down, give in to fear for her safety, and worry about her reputation.

But Mary was far from a typical teenager. She didn’t sit around feeling afraid or sorry for herself. Instead, she listened to the prompting of the Holy Spirit and found the courage to put someone else’s needs before her own. She immediately set off to visit her older cousin, Elizabeth, who also was pregnant.

And what happened when Mary greeted Elizabeth? The Holy Spirit revealed to Elizabeth that her cousin was bearing her people's longed-for Messiah, and he filled Mary's heart with such joy that a beautiful prayer, called the Magnificat, burst forth from her.

If you feel stuck in a problem, think about Mary's example and turn to the Holy Spirit; you'll know He is helping you if, instead of brooding over the situation, you feel a desire to get out of yourself and help the people around you. You'll know it's the Spirit if you get a sense that God is with you in this situation. Mary's yes to the Spirit was a constant theme in her life, and it can be for you too.

Mary, pray that more and more people will turn to the Holy Spirit as you did.

Sunday Reflection

Theirs [is] the worship.

Paul begins his long meditation on the mystery of Israel’s rejection of Christ by listing some of the blessings God has given to his fellow Jews: “adoption, . . . covenants, . . . the law, . . . the promises”. And in the middle of this list is a curious phrase: “the worship.”

How unique—and, yes, how blessed—was Israel’s worship! Unlike their pagan neighbors, who devised their own kinds of sacrifices to please their many gods, the people of Israel had the privilege of offering God the kind of worship that he desired. Following the commandments God gave Moses, they offered sacrifices of love and communion, of repentance and reconciliation with God. They worshipped God for his salvation. They praised him for his greatness and power. The fact that he had chosen them and made a covenant with them proved that he loved them deeply and wanted to form them in his image!

For our part, we have the privilege of worshipping God every time we celebrate Mass. Like the Israelites, we can praise him for his glory. We can thank him for saving us from sin and opening heaven for us. We can worship him for his promise never to leave us or abandon us.

Of course, we don't slaughter sheep or cattle, and we don't burn barley or wheat. That kind of worship played its part in the old testament. On the cross, Jesus offered one, perfect sacrifice to God and sealed an everlasting covenant with us through his blood. Now, when we gather to worship, we do it by recalling Jesus' sacrifice, by receiving him in the Eucharist, and by pledging ourselves to live out the covenant he has so freely made with us.

So set your heart on worshipping the one true God at Mass today. His love for you is everlasting, and his salvation is eternal. It is a privilege and an honor to come into his presence with praise!

“Lord, we praise you, we bless you, we adore you, we glorify you!”

The COVID-19 virus forces us and our parishioners to grapple with a difficult reality. Amid self-isolation and "stay-at-home" orders, an increasing number of people are experiencing sickness and death separated from other people.

Liturgical Press

Liturgical Press (Collegeville, MN) has posted more free resources in their website that relate to healing and grief.

Website link:

Praying Together, Praying Apart: At-Home Prayers for Times of Healing, Illness, and Death is a new resource available for free download in their website and at the link below for praying in times of healing, illness and death.

Praying together, praying apart printable pdf

  • Part I: Prayers of Comfort, Hope, and Healing: These texts can be prayed by individuals, families, or other groups

  • Part II: Lucernarium for Healing: Lucernarium, or "service of light," grows out of the tradition in the early church of lighting lamps for evening prayer. This celebration of light rejoices in Jesus Christ, the Light of the World, the Light no darkness can overcome.

  • Part III: Rosary for Healing with Luke the Evangelist: The rosary is a prayer pathway that invites us to meditate on significant events in Jesus' life. The Rosary for Healing with Luke the Evangelist focuses on the healing mission and ministry of Jesus Christ, allowing us to enter more fully into the healing experiences within Luke's Gospel. Begin each decade by reading the corresponding Scripture passage.

  • Part IV: At-Home Service of Prayer when Someone Has Died: One of the realities of social distancing is the inability to gather as a community for wakes, funerals, and other memorial services when someone has died. This service of prayer is intended to give people a way to pray in their own homes as they grieve the loss of a loved one.
