August 15. The Assumption of Mary into heaven
The truth is we find it extremely hard to be away from our moms. Jesus couldn´t do it either. He could not be in a kingdom, in a heaven where she wouldn´t also be. So, he took her, body and soul. The fact that a woman like us achieved such victory is a proof for our hope that we, too, will triumph over death and evil through the death and resurrection of Christ.
What are your hopes? Are you sometimes discouraged if things don´t go as you would want them to?
