On August 15th we celebrate the Feast of the Assumption of Mary. Because Mary was faithful to God throughout her life, she was spared death and taken up to Heaven, body and soul.
The feast of the Assumption is one of the four Marian dogmas.
- Talk to your kids about using their bodies to do good and taking care of our soul’s earthly home.
- Celebrate the day with fresh flowers to mark Mary’s entrance into heaven.
- Remember to attend Mass on this holy day of obligation!
