Feast of the Assumption

The Assumption is a big feast day and I’m sure the Catholic blogsophere will cover it well.  I always think of the Eastern rites, probably because my recollections of the Assumption at Madonna House included liturgy in the Melkite rite.  Very much a celebration.

On an entirely different note, it also means the beginning of the end of summer.  Kids were all over the grounds of the local museum and science center – turns out today is the last day of summer camp.

Most of all though, August 15 is a day to honor Mary and her role in the Church.
