Happy Feast of Mary’s Assumption!
This Sunday the Solemnity of Mary’s Assumption replaces the regular Sunday Liturgy. Why? What is so important about Mary joining her Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in glory? It all begins with the Incarnation!
I am the Handmaid of the Lord, be it done onto me as you have said. Luke 1:38
The process that led to the mystery we celebrated today is total surrender to the Divine Will, that is kenosis. We celebrate the fact that Mary was totally God’s possession and when her time on Earth was over, she went to the One who totally owned her.
This is our example, we belong to God, but do we live that way? Let us continue to surrender and give ourselves totally to the One who made us and who wants us totally!
