(The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary)

Definition:
4. Christ overcame sin and death by his own death, and one who through Baptism has been born again in a supernatural way has conquered sin and death through the same Christ. Yet, according to the general rule, God does not will to grant to the just the full effect of the victory over death until the end of time has come. And so it is that the bodies of even the just are corrupted after death, and only on the last day will they be joined, each to its own glorious soul.
5. Now God has willed that the Blessed Virgin Mary should be exempted from this general rule. She, by an entirely unique privilege, completely overcame sin by her Immaculate Conception, and as a result she was not subject to the law of remaining in the corruption of the grave, and she did not have to wait until the end of time for the redemption of her body.
44.
Thus,
by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, and by our own authority, we pronounce, declare, and define it to be a divinely revealed dogma: that the Immaculate Mother of God, the ever Virgin Mary, having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory.

Mary-Assumption-Rubens_____________________________

In St. John’s vision, A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.   Rv 11:19a – 12:10

The queen takes her place at your right hand in gold of Ophir.
Ps 45

So many glorious images of the Blessed Virgin Mary, undefiled, the ‘ark’ of the New Covenant (Jesus), our Mother, our Church.

Through her glorious Assumption and Jesus’ divine Ascension, we have such indescribable Hope for eternal life, body and soul, with the Father and the Holy Spirit, in communion with all the saints and our loved ones, that Santa Claus, our highest promotions and even winning a grand lottery – pale in comparison.

Blessed be our God!
