The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

From the Roman Missal Preface of the Assumption:

"Today the virgin Mother of God is taken up into heaven to be the beginning and the pattern of the Church in its perfection, and a sign of hope and comfort for your people on their pilgrim way."
We are a pilgrim people, always searching along that path towards Heaven, and we need hope and comfort.  Thank you Lord, for your most holy Mother.
