Gospel: Luke 1:39-56
“Blessed are you among women and blessed is the fruit of your womb.”
On this feast day of the Assumption of Our Lady, we are filled with joy of having a mother in heaven who was brought up in glory body and soul. She who has comforted us all our lives, we look up to her and emulate her humility, though she is the Mother of Jesus, what she went through isn’t comparable to what we are going through. As we go through our own suffering, let us be like her, quiet in grace and dignity. She’s the closest we can get to God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Cling to her like a child, wrapped in her warm motherly embrace.
