Feast of the Assumption of our Blessed Mother

Feast of the Assumption

“Assumption” means here “to be taken up” body and soul to Heaven. It is not Ascension, like Jesus, done by his own power, but Assumption done by the power of God. It is something God did for her, not something she did herself. It is a gift of God as a result of Christ’s redemptive power applied to Virgin Mary. The Dogma says, “The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin is a singular participation in her Son’s Resurrection”. The Assumption of Mary was God’s way of finishing the job he started at Mary’s Immaculate Conception, redeeming her body from the effects of sin as well.

Masses at St. Rose :

Thursday, August 14, Vigil (Spanish) 7:00 PM
Friday, August 15, 6:30, 8:00, 5:30 PM (English)
