Assumption of Our Lady

"...and if He had prepared a place in heaven for the Apostles,
how much more for His mother;
if Enoch had been translated and Elijah had gone to heaven,
how much more Mary..."
Theoteknos, Bishop of Livias (near Jericho), c. 600 A.D.

Don't forget that tomorrow, Tuesday, August 15, is the Feast of the Assumption of Our Lady, and a holy day of obligation. Go to to find churches and times of Mass near you.

Note: You may have to call ahead to find out what time Holy Day Masses are if you are new to that particular parish church.

Thanks so much to A Penitent Blogger for the beautiful quote!

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
