|Feast of the Assumption|
Thursday, August 15 ~ Today we celebrate one of the greatest of all the Marian feasts and a holy day of obligation, the feast of the Assumption. Sharing with you a favorite prayer that I found in the book: SPECIAL DEVOTIONS compiled for Children of the Sacred Heart - Revised Edition 1956
Feast, August 15th
Sovereign Ruler of Heaven and earth, Who didst subvert the laws of nature, in becoming the Son of the ever blessed Virgin Mary, we adore Thy infinite power, wisdom, and bounty. We return Thee thanks for having preserved the soul of Mary from original and actual sin; for having enriched her with Thy gifts, and preserved her virginal body from the corruption of the tomb. Forever blessed be the moment which Thou wert pleased to reunite her most pure body to her happy soul, and receive them into immortal glory!
O compassionate Mother, be our advocate with the Adorable Trinity. Behold our combats, obtain for us the conquest of our enemies, grace to avoid sin, hearts detached from earthly affections, and the possession of a blessed eternity. Amen.
