Starting on 1 November 1950, Pope Pius XII declared a dogma of the church that The Virgin Mary, having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory. The Feast of The Assumption of The Blessed Virgin Mary is celebrated by catholics church on August 15.

The Feast of the Assumption has always been loved dearly by the faithful who are children of Mary. It is a sign to us that someday, through God’s grace and our efforts, we too may join the Blessed Mother in giving glory to God. The Assumption is a source of great hope for us, too, for it points the way for all followers of Christ who imitate her fidelity and obedience to God’s will. Where she now is, we are meant eventually to be, and may hope to be through Divine grace. Mary’s being taken to heaven after her life on earth was ended is the logical outcome of her immaculate nature, uniquely protected — also by God’s grace — from personal sin. We seek to imitate her self-sacrificing love, her indestructible faith and her perfect obedience. source: www.wf-f.org

Let us celebrate The Feast of the Assumption of The Blessed Virgin Mary with hope that God will forgive our sins through His son, and we, the believers, could imitate St.Mary for her love and faithfulness to God.
