The Assumption of Mary
The body that gave birth to, and the body that breast-fed Jesus, is the body we honor in the Church today. Hers is a very holy body. A body that from the moment of his birth in Bethlehem gave attention to the Son of the Living God throughout the course of his entire life. From stable to Cross to grave.

As we honor Mary today, in her being assumed into heaven body and soul, the greater reason for God favoring Mary so wonderfully and in such a delightful way has less to do with Mary
