Assumption of Mary
August 15, Assumption of Mary
Dear Parishioner and Friend of The Sunday Mass,
As we make our way through the warm lazy days of summer it is a great grace that we can honor our Blessed Mother, through the Feast of her Assumption. Mary, the Mother of us all, who guides, comforts, and embraces us with her caring presence and love.
As people of faith we believe that Mary, after completing her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into the Heavenly Kingdom. As we honor her in the midst of our summer journey, we are reminded that all of us can share in the gift of the Heaven Kingdom. A gift that was made possible through the love of the Cross of Christ and Mary stood at the foot of that Loving Cross. How wonderful and blessed we are to participate in their love.
During the month of August, we wish to honor Mary and celebrate the Feast of the Assumption by joining together in prayer through the intercession Mary. Remember never was it known that anyone who fled to her protection, implored her help or sought her intercession was left unaided!
So we invited you to join us in prayer throughout August by sending us the names and special intentions you would like remembered at mass and during our daily prayers. Your intentions will be placed in the basket next to the altar during The Sunday Mass, as well as being remembered in the daily prayers of the Passionist Community.
Let me take this opportunity to once again thank you for your continued generosity and support of The Sunday Mass. Without your ongoing support, we would not be able to continue this important ministry. I would also like to thank you for your faith. Remember faith grows stronger when shared in community and our community reaches worldwide!
Please know that there are many ways for you to get involved in and support The Sunday Mass faith community. Take some time and visit our website, www.TheSundayMass.org. It is there that you can make a Prayer Intention, Light a Virtual Candle, order The Prayer Guide or one of the many books we offer. You can also make a donation which helps us to continue to bring you The Sunday Mass each week.
I hope you are getting a chance to enjoy these summer days. Please be assured of our prayers throughout the summer and always.
Peace in Christ’s Passion,
Fr. Paul R. Fagan, C.P.
Pastor of The Sunday Mass
