Wishing all our bloggers and readers a very happy Feast of the Assumption. Feel free to share your favourite prayers, hymns, stories – even your favourite jokes, of the good clean fun variety – to celebrate the Feast. But first, click here to read Munificentissimus Deus – the Apostolic Constitution of Pope Pius XII defining the dogma of the Assumption in 1950.
This thread is to mark the Holy Day of the Assumption, today, 15th August. Feel free to post comments, favourite prayers, hymns – anything which gives honour to and pays tribute to Our Lady on this great Feast.
Since our Holy Father the Pope is reputed to have a particular devotion to Our Lady (and it would be difficult to comprehend any pontiff who did NOT love Our Lady) may I suggest that we remember Pope Francis in prayer in a special way today.
However, hang on. Enough of all this serious stuff! This is a Feast Day, so some fun is also in order. Thus, alongside the hymns, prayers and stories about Our Lady’s influence in our lives, feel free to post some (innocent, of course) jokes and stories.
A very happy Feast Day to one and all!
