Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Wednesday, August 15th, is the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Honor her that day by praying the Rosary.


One way we honor Mary is by praying the rosary. This is usually done using a set of beads with a crucifix attached. We pray the rosary by praying the Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory to the Father over and over again. This creates a peaceful rhythm of prayer during which we can reflect on the special times in the lives of Mary and Jesus. These form the "mysteries" of the Rosary, four sets of beditations that include:


I invite you to download a Gather In My Name handout that includes activities and descriptions of the five joyful mysteries!  The Joyful Mysteries come from the Gospel of Luke and focus on the announcement of Jesus' birth to Mary by the angel Gabriel (the Annunciation); the visit of Mary and Elizabeth (the Visitation); the birth of Jesus (the Nativity); the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple; and the finding of Jesus in the temple.


Continue your reflection and discussion of Mary with Sadlier's Honoring Mary Around The World Gather In My Name Event! These two event options were designed so participants will be able to name the various ways that the Church honors Mary through prayer and devotions, and to identify ways to follow her example as disciples of Jesus, her Son.
