If we go through the Gospels we can see that Mary as a faithful servant of God who shared intimately in the birth, life, death and resurrection of our Lord. So, we believe that the promises of our Lord had given each of us sharing eternal life including a resurrection of the body, were fulfilled in Mary.
The feast of Assumption gives each of us great hope as we contemplate this one feast of the beautiful woman of faith, our Blessed Mother Mary, moves us by example and prayer is grown in God’s grace, to be receptive to his will, to convert our lives through sacrifices and penance and seek that everlasting union in the Heavenly Kingdom.

Consequently, we must not lose our serenity and peace even the amidst of difficulties. We may be sure of it, from on high, Mary follows one footsteps with gentle concern, dispels the gloom in moments of darkness and distress, reassures us with her motherly hand, supported by this awareness lets forge ahead in our lives under Mary’s guidance.
