On the Feast of the Assumption

Wednesday is the Feast of the Assumption of Mary.
This fresco of the Dominican saints (which is at Santa Sabina in Rome) under the mantle of Mary reminds us that she and our loving God welcome us into their presence.

    apocryphal accounts of the assumption of Mary into heaven have circulated since at least the 4th century. The Catholic Church itself interprets chapter 12 of the Book of Revelation as referring to it.
