Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

“Mary’s assumption is an event that concerns us precisely because every human being is destined to die. But death is not the last word. It is the passage to the eternal happiness in store for those who toil for truth and justice and do their utmost to follow Christ.”
Pope John Paul II, Homily on the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, August 15, 2001

    I also found an interesting article about the Dormition/Assumption providing a broad perspective on the feast’s history and the various ways it is observed. Worth checking it out:
