assumptionThe Solemnity of the Assumption is, in some ways, the paramount feast of Our Lady, since it commemorates her passing, body and soul, into glory in heaven, where she stands beside her Son ‘in garments of gold.’  Though the dogma of the Assumption was only defined in 1950, it was widely believed by the earliest Christians.  The Blessed Virgin truly leads the way; she fulfilled her vocation in humility and, given her Immaculate Conception, the grave was no place for her body.  Where she is now, we one day hope to be. – CTS New Daily Roman Missal 2012, p 2912
