Celebrate the Assumption of Mary, her Catholic heavenly birthday

The Assumption of Mary is a Roman Catholic feast day on August 15 that celebrates the Virgin Mary’s heavenly birthday (basically her death).

The story is that the Virgin Mary was so good that not just her soul, but her entire body was taken up into heaven. I think what theologians are trying to say is that woman is good and should be respected.

The Assumption of Mary is a Modern Practice

The Assumption of Mary is a major feast day and a Holy Day of Obligation in the Roman Catholic Church.

The celebration was defined by Pope Pius XII in 1950.
