- Pope Francis today in Daejeon, Korea
What son would not bring his mother back to life and would not bring her into paradise after her death if he could?
- St Francis de Sales on the Assumption
Assumpta est Maria by William Byrd.
Mary has been received into Heaven: the angels rejoice with praises and bless the Lord. Alleluia.
Mary is the prototype of the Church in pilgrimage on earth. She is also, as the Assumpta, the prototype of the permanent Church, established in heaven.
- Edward Shillebeeck
