Mary's Assumption--What Does It Have to Do With Us? With Everyday Life? THE WANDERING FRIAR - August 16, 2017 The other day I told a man who invited me to dinner last night that I could not accept because I had a Mass. "Why?" he asked. I reminded him that it was the Feast of the Assumption. He then went into a minor rant basically saying that such beliefs are interesting, but irrelevant, in light of all that is going on in the world. His objection may be somewhat understandable given the fact that he, like many, don't understand the implications ...http://frjohnsblog.blogspot.com/2017/08/marys-assumption-what-does-it-have-to.html

Aug 15 - The Assumption of Mary FATHER BILL'S BLOG - August 15, 2017 + Today we celebrate a great feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The wording of the Dogma of the Assumption made by Pope Pius XII on this date in 1950 proclaiming this fact is this: "when the course of her earthly life was finished," the Blessed Virgin Mary "was taken up body and soul into the glory of heaven." This definition does not take a position on the long-disputed question of whether Mary actually died.

A Glimpse of the 13th Century THE CANON'S STALL - August 11, 2017 It's St Clare's feast today. Hard to imagine church life without the many women's religious orders out in the world, teaching, nursing, in parish ministry etc. None of this was really possible in Clare's time, the early 13th century. So when she was inspired by the ten years older St Francis, perhaps wanting to be out in the community like him, she couldn't. Instead, Francis gave her the chapel of San Damiano, on the slope below his beloved Assisi, ...http://thecanonsstall.blogspot.com/2017/08/a-glimpse-of-13th-century.html
