Stamp - The Assumption



The Assumption is one of the great festivals of the Christian life.
It celebrates the glory of Mary with God at the end of her earthly life.

Assumption, the ethymology:
- from Old French assumpcion
- and directly from Latin assumptionem (nominative assumptio)
 it means "a taking, receiving".


Mary having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory.


The Assumption of Mary into Heaven is also known as the Falling Asleep of the Blessed Virgin Mary,  
the "Dormition of the Theotokos" (the falling asleep of the Mother of God) (Eastern & Oriental Orthodoxy).

The beliefs are shared by the Catholic Church, Eastern Orthodoxy, Oriental Orthodoxy, and parts of Anglicanism.
The Assumption is a major feast day, celebrated on August 15th.
The feast is also marked as a Holy Day of Obligation in the Roman Catholic Church,
and as a Festival in the Anglican Communion.

This particular deviant, has been a Catholic basher and a hater of the Blessed Virgin since way back when.
we should all pray for him.

Father, he knows not what he does...
Forgive him Mother, please.

As our lady imitated Christ in all things on earth, she did as He did, upon her death, being assumed into heaven body and soul.
the Assumption truly is one of the Catholic Church's greats Holydays and it is also a holyday of obligation! attendance at mass is required unless one has a serious reason .
this is beautiful my friend.
you call it a tiny present but i consider it a great and wonderful gift!!! i love it.
thank-you!!!!!!
Our Lady of Good Success, pray for us!

It's sad to say there is nothing really historical or canonical to support this doctrine...The early church fathers didn't even know what happened to her!
The earliest basis for this doctrine only came to be 700 years after the death of Christ!

There are hymns recorded (written records, obviously) to the Virgin Mary as early as the first century so your research is a little off.  This is all I'm going to say too, so really, don't expect a response to anything else you might post in regards to Our Lady.   Believe or believe not.   It's your choice.

“The belief in the corporeal assumption of Mary is founded on the apocryphal treatise De Obitu S. Dominae, bearing the name of St. John, which belongs however to the fourth or fifth century. It is also found in the book De Transitu Virginis, falsely ascribed to St. Melito of Sardis, and in a spurious letter attributed to St. Denis the Areopagite” (Catholic Encyclopaedia).

The first church author to speak on the assumption, Gregory of Tours, based his teaching on the Transitus, perhaps because he accepted it as genuine.4 However, in 459 A.D. Pope Gelasius issued a decree that officially condemned and rejected theTransitus along with several other heretical writings. Pope Hormisdas reaffirmed this decree in the sixth century.5 It is ironic that this heretical teaching was later promoted within the Catholic Church, until eventually it was proclaimed a dogma in the twentieth century.
