Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Jul 27, 2019


Welcome to It Is Well Living Church, where we come together to celebrate and honor our faith in God. Join us as we commemorate the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, a significant occasion in the Catholic calendar.

What is the Feast of the Assumption?

The Feast of the Assumption, also known as the Assumption of Mary, is a religious event that commemorates the belief in the bodily assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into heaven at the end of her earthly life. It is celebrated on August 15th each year with great reverence and joy by Catholics around the world.

Significance of the Feast

This event holds immense significance for the Catholic community. The Assumption of Mary signifies her special place in salvation history and her unique role as the Mother of God. It emphasizes the belief that Mary's soul was taken to heaven, both body and soul, following her earthly journey.

Celebration and Traditions

At It Is Well Living Church, we observe the Feast of the Assumption with a special Mass and various traditional rituals. The day begins with a solemn procession, accompanied by hymns praising Mary's glorious assumption. The Mass includes readings, prayers, and a homily that delves into the theological significance of the event.

Mary's Assumption in Scripture and Tradition

The Assumption of Mary is not explicitly mentioned in the Bible; however, it is upheld by longstanding Catholic tradition. Early Christian writings testify to the belief in Mary's assumption, and it was officially declared a dogma of faith by Pope Pius XII in 1950 through the Apostolic Constitution Munificentissimus Deus.

Fostering a Deeper Understanding

During our celebration, we aim to deepen our understanding of the Assumption and its importance in our faith. We offer educational sessions, seminars, and discussions to explore the theological complexities surrounding this divine event.
