Solemnity the Blessed Virgins Assumption

13/08/2005: Vatican

In the heart of the month of August the liturgy celebrates with solemnity the Blessed Virgins Assumption into Heaven. This is a day of hope and of light, because all men and women, pilgrims on the earth, are able to foresee in Mary the destiny of glory that awaits them.
We look to her as a sign of sure hope. Indeed, in Mary, Gods promise to the humble and righteous is fulfilled: evil and death will not have the last word.
However dark the shadows that sometimes gather on the horizon and however incomprehensible certain events may appear to be in human history, we must never lose trust and peace. Todays feast invites us to entrust ourselves to Mary Assumed into Heaven who, like a shining star from Heaven, directs our daily journey on earth.
The Virgin indeed continues her work as our advocate and minister of salvation beside the King of glory. Mary helps in understanding that only in her Divine Son can the full sense and value of our life be found. In this way, hope for the goal towards which we are journeying as members of the pilgrim People of God in history is nourished in us.
Virgin Mother of Christ, keep watch over the Church! One day may we also partake in your same glory in Paradise, where today you were raised above the choirs of angels to lasting glory with Christ.
