In the middle of summer, the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary is a new celebration of Easter. A woman, our sister, one of us, is admitted to share fully in the glory of the risen Christ. The woman “clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars” (Re 12:1) shines as a brilliant light. She is dressed with the light of God, with a garment of glory. The love of the Father for his eternal Son, that is the very glory of the Triune God, dwells in Mary’s soul and marvellously clothes her body.
