The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

 On the 15th of August, the Church celebrates the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. After her death, she was taken up to Heaven - soul and body - by Jesus Christ.

Mary is the greatest saint and is crowned Queen of Heaven and of the Angels. Her intercession is very strong, because she born in purity, was chosen as the mother of God and was the human who lived the closest to our Lord.

Our Lady of the Assumption, pray for us!
