Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

These readings do not mention the subject of our feast today, for it is not found in Scripture. And yet the People of God still believe it is Truth. Why? Because it says something about God that we like: they loved Mary so much, they were willing to suspend the laws of nature to honor her faithfulness. Who wouldn't want a Parent like that? "Blessed are you" indeed, Sister Mary.
