Daily Prayer

August 15, 2018

Holy Mother Mary,
we all rejoice with you today
on the feast of your glorious Assumption into heaven.
You have been taken up body and soul into heaven.
There, with your Divine Son,
you await our coming,
and prepare a place for us.
Mother Mary,
it is a great comfort to us to realize that your precious body,
the tabernacle of the infant Christ,
is now in heaven with Him.
Your being taken into heaven is also,
like the resurrection of Christ's body,
a pledge to us of the resurrection of our own bodies.
O most pure Virgin Mary,
help us to have great respect for these bodies of ours,
and for those of others because we recognize in them
the temple of the Holy Spirit,
and because we look forward to seeing each other,
body and soul,
with you and your Son Jesus Christ forever in heaven.

Amen.
