After the Assumption
By Rebecca Teti at Faith and Family Live
A retrospective of highlights from different articles on the Assumption this week, including the Pope Benedict's homily.
Speaking of the Assumption...
So, you remember that I've written a book, now, don't you? One of my favorite homilies of ALL TIME on Mary from Pope Benedict XVI is the Homily he gave in 2005 on the Assumption... and yes, I actually quote a small segment of it in my book... but the reason I bring this up--not the book but Benedict-- is that while we are in the Octave of the Assumption, you really should read this homily. It will give you food for thought for a while. Mary loves us so very much. So, run along now. Go read.
Of course, two recent Among Women podcasts give you good stuff on the Assumption on AW 141 and AW 143 on the Queenship of Mary, the feast coming up on August 22.
UPDATE: Sorry for the incorrect link on Jason Kotecki's article, it is now corrected!
