Heaven and earth delight this day, as angels and dominions join in the table of men, to celebrate a creature ever beautiful ever pure, a maiden set apart by divine love, who carried out a special task during her earthly mission in love and obedience, reverence and without blemish, that of nurturing God incarnate, and at the end of her life, was taken up by God the father where she reigns and lives with her son in glory; Heaven celebrates you o Maria.

You who St. John Damascene wrote so beautifully: “It was fitting that she who in childbirth preserved intact her virginity should preserve without corruption her body after the conclusion of her earthly life. It was fitting that she who bore in her womb the creator become a babe should dwell in the divine mansion. It was fitting that the spouse of God be taken to the heavenly home. It was fitting that she who witnessed her Son on the cross, suffering in her heart then the pain she was spared in childbirth, should contemplate him seated at the right hand of the Father. It was fitting that the Mother of God come to possess what belongs to her Son and that she be honoured as Mother and Servant of God by all creatures.”

This day serves a tale of love and hope; God showering his love on her, on all humanity who follows him with holiness and utmost reverence in sufferings and in victory. At the break of the night, the height of our glory would be radiant as the morning light shed on the gentle stream.

With thanksgiving on our lips for the queen arrayed in gold, a great sign from heaven and with eyes turn on her gaze, ask for her prayers in the heavenly place, to walk this earth without stumble or fear, and reign forever in purity and care. Ave Maria!

Happy feast to you all my friends

Peace and Love of Christ
