The Catholic Church teaches that when the earthly life of Mary, mother of Jesus, was completed, Mary was taken up body and soul into the glory of heaven. The solemnity of the Assumption of Mary into heaven is commemorated on the 15th August each year.
Mary, just as you were taken bodily into heaven so I, too, hope that one day my body will be resurrected and I will have a new life in heaven. Amen
