The Assumption of the Virgin Mary, El Amparo ChapeL, Huehuetenango

“The Most Blessed Virgin Mary, when the course of her earthly life was completed, was taken up body and soul into the glory of heaven. The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin is a singular participation in her Son’s Resurrection and an anticipation of the resurrection of other Christians: In your Dormition you did not leave the world, O Mother of God, but were joined to the source of Life…” – From the Byzantine Liturgy and quoted from the Catechism of the Catholic Church, #966 and #974.

On this feast of the Assumption, we joyfully honor Mary, the Mother of our Lord, the Mother of the Church, our own Blessed Mother.
