Her Fitting Assumption

Sermon From
The Feast Of The Assumption 2013
Congratulations to all the confirmands who received the Sacrament of Confirmation last Sunday.  You have received an increase of the Seven Gifts of the Holy Ghost which were originally received at your Baptism.  You now are soldiers of Christ and represent the Church to the world.  This is a serious obligation which we all must honor in our lives.  The better to do so means not only knowing the names of the Gifts but what they are and do for us.  This is the feast of Our Lady’s Assumption into heaven body and soul.  It is a dogma of the Faith and must be believed by Catholics.  Critics complain that the Blessed Mother has been too highly placed by us but actually it is Christ Who is first exalted on this day.  It is most appropriate because His Mother imitated Our Lord in all His redemptive actions and so she should share in His Resurrection and Ascension.  Our Queen must reign in heaven and this is more perfect with her body.
