The Dogma of the Assumption by Pope Pius XII tells us
that belief in the bodily Assumption of Mary
into heaven will make our faith in our own
resurrection, both stronger and active’.
Mary is the horizon of whispering hope for us.
We make her gospel words our own:
‘The Almighty has done great things for me.’ (Luke 1:49)
Mary is a geography of grace,
a luminous landscape of light and love,
a heart of humility, humanity and holiness.
Mary echoes a prayer of
Promise, peace and presence
For all God’s pilgrim-priestly-people.
‘Blessed is she who believed’ (Luke 1:45)
