Sisters and Brothers in Christ, may God bless you on this Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
On this day that we celebrate Our Blessed Mother’s entrance into heaven, let’s use her as our example of hope not only as our spiritual mother whose life was full of examples of grace, but as someone who through deep challenge and sorrow, throughout her life, remained steadfast and faithful to God and His extraordinary plans for her.
Our own Archdiocese of Philadelphia New Evangelization is taking part in the national rosary rally for peace, praying all four sets of mysteries of the rosary on the Feast of the Assumption, and invites you to take part in this powerful event. The rally has been co-organized by the Sisters of Life, the Dominican Friars, Servants of the Lord and the Virgin Matará. St. Charles Borromeo Seminary seminarians, will release a video today praying each set of the mysteries of the rosary.
