Weekly Updates for Aug 15: Happy Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Graced By God Tomorrow and Saturday, Register for 5K, and more.
In the light of the Assumption of Mary, it is easy to pray her Magnificat (Luke 1:46–55) with new meaning. In her glory she proclaims the greatness of the Lord and finds joy in God her savior. God has done marvels to her and she leads others to recognize God’s holiness. She is the lowly handmaid who deeply reverenced her God and has been raised to the heights. From her position of strength she will help the lowly and the poor find justice on earth, and she will challenge the rich and powerful to distrust wealth and power as a source of happiness.
Today is the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and is a holy day of obligation. Please join us for Mass at 12:00 Noon or 6:00p.
