Glorious Mysteries: The Assumption (African Community)
Catechism of the Catholic Church:
When the course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things. . . .The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin is a singular participation in her Son’s Resurrection and an anticipation of the resurrection of other Christians”
How do we respond to this incredible honor bestowed upon Mary, the Mother of Jesus? One simple way is by imitating the humility of Mary, who said, “Behold I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your will!” One thing seems certain: those who—like Mary—humble themselves before God, will also one day be exalted in God’s glorious presence!
For the Church, that we may find ways to both preach the word and serve our neighbour, especially during this time of separation and crisis.
