SOLEMNITY OF THE ASSUMPTION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
Mary enters heaven to the joy of all the angels and saints, and so we pray:
O God, through the intercession of Mary, number us among your saints in glory.
Jesus, through your mother, Mary, you learned to pray, teach us to pray and to be open to your Spirit.
You changed water into wine at the request of your mother, increase our faith in your care for our needs.
Your mother was your first disciple, as we meditate on the words of your gospel, may it bear fruit in our lives.
Glory to you, O God, in the entrance to eternal life of the ever Blessed Virgin Mary. Through her intercession, may we live the gospel of Jesus with constancy and love. As we celebrate her joy, may we imitate her fidelity.
