Happy Feast of the Assumption everyone!
I have to admit, I thought long and hard about what to write today. After all, there are just so many things to say about our Blessed Mother.
I went back and read one of my older posts on proof the Assumption happened.
I thought about Her amazing faith in our Father.
I pondered how she found the strength to watch her Son go through what He did for us.
But mostly, I wondered.
I wondered what it was like on that glorious day. Most of the time when I think about the Assumption I think of the physical raising of Mary's body into Heaven. What was that really like? Was she carried away by angels? Did she float up on a cloud? Did it happen during the day or at night?
But Happy to Be Catholic gave me a whole new perspective in her comments on my last post.
She noted how wonderful it must have been for Mary to meet our Father for the first time! I have to admit, I never thought about it like that! Mary is such an important figure in our faith that sometimes I forget she only met God after her time here on Earth.
HC also stated how happy Mary must have been to see her Son again! Again, I had never really looked at the Assumption through Mary's eyes. Of course she must have been overwhelmed with joy be reunited with Jesus after all the suffering they went through here on Earth.
And of course, everyone in Heaven must have rejoiced to finally have Mary join them in Paradise.
What a beautiful day it must have been.
Mary, please pray for us.
