The Fourth Glorious Mystery: The Assumption
A Reflection by Dan Allen, Parishioner

rosary-beads.jpg The following is the eighth of twenty monthly reflections about the Mysteries of the Rosary as they relate to family life.  The mysteries will not be necessarily chronological but presented as they interact with the liturgical year.  For previous installments, click here.


One of the more moving scenes for me in the movie The Passion of the Christ is when Jesus falls on his way to Calvary.  The film makes frequent and effective use of flashbacks, and in this case, as the adult Jesus falls under the weight of his cross, we see the image of Jesus falling as a child.  In both instances Mary is rushing to catch her beloved son. I will admit that I cried like a baby when I watched this scene for the first time!  It presents such a common human scene of a mother hastening to a suffering child, and we feel the yearnings of both parent and child on either side of the situation.  Those bonds help inform my own imagery of this month's rosary mystery, when the roles are suddenly reversed.

Living our Faith at Home

doctor_patient.jpg In our families and extended families, there is often someone who is elderly, lonely, or sick in some way. Take some time this month to visit, send cards or flowers, or somehow keep this person in your family's prayers in a special way.  After all, this is part of our Christian call, and we will be grateful for such things when we are on the receiving end of them.

Did you know....

The Assumption is related to the teaching of the reunification of our bodies and souls at The Last Judgment.  For now, the soul separates from the body at death, and while we treat the deceased person's body with reverence, we acknowledge that something is missing.  However, as all humanity gathers before God at the end of time, our bodies will be renewed and joined again to our souls.  The difference for Mary is that God allowed her body to be already joined to her soul.  For more on our bodily reunification, see the Catechism of the Church, paragraphs 1020-1065.

As the curtain rises, Hannah hesitantly steps onto the stage for her theatrical debut in college.Yet before she can utter her first lines, Hannah-unscripted-collapses in front of the stunned audience. After countless medical tests, all signs point to one underlying factor: Hannah's difficult birth. This revelation is nothing compared to what she then learns from her parents: she was actually adopted ... after a failed abortion attempt. Bewildered, angered, and confused, Hannah turns for support to Jason, her long-time friend. Encouraged by his adventurous spirit, Hannah joins his group of friends on a Spring Break road trip, embarking on a journey to discover her hidden past ... and find hope for her unknown future. In the midst of her incredible journey, Hannah learns that every life is beautiful.
