Musical Rosary #14–Assumption July 8, 2014

Assumption of the Virgin Mary

The two things I focus on with this mystery are the union of body and soul–Mary enters Heaven all at once, continuing her lifelong task of showing us what true human integrity looks like–and the rest and peace offered to those who “have fallen asleep in the Lord.” I often pray this mystery for people whose lives were unpeaceful and for whom death may have appeared to be a relief or a release, in the hopes that death will bring them to purgatory and to a much deeper and sweeter rest than they have ever known, in the arms of our common Lover.
