August 15 The Solemnity of the Assumption - For hundreds of years, Catholics observed the feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary on August 15 — celebrating Mary’s being taken bodily to Heaven after her death — but it was not until 1950 that the Church proclaimed this teaching a dogma of the Church — one of the essential beliefs of the Catholic faith.
catholicsplash: The Assumption of Mary! Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee! Blessed art thou amongst women! Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God! Make it to mass this Feast of the Assumption. And be sure to pray a rosary!
Beautiful painting ! Maria Magdalena, a woman who was mistakenly judged and to this day is mistakenly believed to be someone she is not, however she was one of the only people who stood by the side of someone she cared for through as he was being persecuted and thereafter.
