August 15 is the Solemnity of the Assumption! On the Solemnity of the Assumption, we celebrate Jesus raising His mother Mary into Heaven - body and soul. Mary is the Mother of God, whom Jesus saved from all sin, and He also honored her by raising her body up and reuniting it with her soul to be glorified in Heaven. That’s called the Assumption of Mary! When we die, we will look forward to the same resurrection of our bodies - but the Mother of God didn’t have to wait! The Solemnity of the Assumption is a Holy Day of Obligation - make sure you celebrate with all the angels and saints in Heaven by going to Mass on this day!
The Gospel reading for the Solemnity this year is the Visitation! So scroll below to watch our video about the Visitation from our "Jesse Tree" video DVD!
