DORMITION OF THE MOST HOLY
MOTHER OF GOD

This feast commemorates the happy death of the Blessed Virgin May. Her death was so calm and free from pains and remorse that it seemed to be a “sleep.”
It is an article of faith that the Blessed Mother of our Savior was taken body and soul into heaven upon her death. Although the Blessed Virgin really died and her soul was separated from her body, the latte, however, was preserved from corruption and shortly afterwards was re united to her soul. Thus the Blessed Virgin entered heaven with a glorified body and soul.
We do not know how many years after Christ’s death the Blessed Virgin remained on earth. Some writers affirm that she died at the age of seventy two, that is, twenty two years after our Lord’s death.
The feast itself was introduced in the second or third century, for Pope Gelasius I (492-496) calls it very old in one of his letters. In the fifth century it spread to the whole Church.
We thank Michael Kane for his donation of flowers this week in honor of the Blessed Mothers Dormition.
