Is there such a thing as one celebration or feast of our church that is more important than another? Well yes, I suppose there is. The feasts of our Savior are up there at the top… With the importance that we place on Mary’s intercession, today’s feast is also one to remind us of who we are and the importance of living our lives so as to give glory to God as she did. Because of her part in bringing Christ into our world, she was given a special gift of not experiencing death. We pray thru her intercession that our passing from this life too might not be a struggle for us or those we love.
