Celebrating the Assumption of Mary

Some days in the Liturgical season, by their cultural and religious nature, lend themselves better to celebrating as a family than others—such as Christmas and Easter. Yet, every Solemnity, Memorial, or Feast in the Catholic Church is worthy of acknowledging in some special way. For families, additional feast days can offer beautiful teachable moments and the creation of lifetime memories.

The undeserved yet freely given gift of God’s Holy Spirit working deep within us, which helps us know, love, and serve God. Since Mary is full of grace, we can deduce that grace comes with exceptional power and blessings.
