A Prayer for the Assumption

Prayer for the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Almighty and everlasting God,
You have taken up body and soul
into the heavenly glory the Immaculate Virgin Mary,
Mother of Your Son: Grant, we beseech You,
that, ever intent upon heavenly things,
we may be worthy to be partakers of her glory.
Through Jesus Christ Your Son, our Lord,
who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
One God, forever and ever. Amen.

Today is the Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary

For the Assumption (Belatedly)


The Solemnity of the Assumption was yesterday (better late than never, I guess–at least I made Mass).  In Eastern Orthodoxy, it is known as the Dormition (falling asleep) of the Mother of God.
