There's something I've always liked about the Feast of the Assumption. I suppose it is the notion that when Mary died her son, Jesus, took her, body and soul, to be with him in paradise.
It's a crazy notion. But only right and fair when you think about it.
I love that Mary, who was just a girl from Nazareth when God called her for his special task, is up in heaven waiting and willing to intercede for us with her son, Jesus. Do we feel too humble to speak to God directly about something? Then we can ask Mary to ask on our behalf. What a wonderful advocate to have in high places.
Mary, Mother of God, pray for us.
