August 15, 2016 - "Feast of the Assumption"
Today the Catholic Church celebrates the "Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary". This celebrates the Blessed Virgin being taken body and soul into Heaven, where she would ultimately be crowned Queen of Heaven and Earth.
"Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; Blessed art though among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen."
