Novena for the Feast of the Assumption, August 6 - 14

Sunday, August 7, 2016

Walk with us toward the celebration of the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (August 15) with this novena. Spend a few moments each day contemplating Mary and praying with her.

"As they [the Religious of the Assumption] journey in faith,

Mary, the Mother of Jesus, is there.

In her, one like themselves,

the sisters discover how great

is a woman's capacity for love.

In Mary, all was adoration.

She allowed the Life of the Trinity

gradually to pervade her whole being

until the moment when

the glory of God broke through her weakness

in the mystery of the Assumption."
— from the Prologue of the Rule of Life of the Religious of the Assumption
