Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
“O most sweet Lady and our Mother, thou hast already left the earth and reached thy kingdom, where, as Queen, thou art enthroned … From the high throne, then, to which thou art exalted, turn, O Mary, thy compassionate eyes upon us, and pity us.”
Saint Alphonsus de Liguori

The Assumption of Mary is the celebration of her passing into eternal life, when she was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory upon the conclusion of her earthly life. Though the Church has long believed in the Assumption of Mary, the dogma was only formally defined by Pope Pius XII in 1950.
The Assumption is a feast day celebrated every August 15th. It is a holy day of obligation to attend Mass.
