Today is the Feast of the Assumption. Although it is not a holy day of obligation for Catholics in the US, it is still a very important day in the life of the Church. Feasts dedicated to Mary say more about her son, Jesus, than herself. I would love to share with you Scott Hahn’s teaching on the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Also, if you are unaware what the US Bishops pastoral letter, Stewardship: A Disciples Response says about Mary as a role model for good stewards everywhere, today is a great day to look at that. This LINK will take you to a free download of the letter and I would direct you to pages 40 and 41.
Have a blessed Feast of the Assumption!
