Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Celebrate the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This ancient feast calls the Christian community together in praising the Lord for the honor he bestowed upon Mary when she became Mother of the Word Incarnate. Mary is the perfect disciple who followed her Son as he preached God's mercy. She is the image of the Church at prayer.

August Is a Time for Beginnings

Do you think of August as a time of new beginnings? For our seminarians, it certainly is! Some have just taken their first vows and have moved to a new formation house, a new school. Others have new courses and ministries. For a few, finishing their degree and preparing for perpetual vows and ordination is a new beginning.

In our reading from Revelation John is given a vision of the Church, called the Heavenly Jerusalem. Prominent in the vision is the number twelve.
