About the Feast of the Assumption of Mary
On this day, we celebrate the assumption of Mary, mother of Jesus, into heaven. At the end of her life, Mary’s body and soul were assumed into heavenly glory. This is one of the oldest holy days of the Christian church.
Whether Mary had a physical death was not known. The New Testament has no writings about Mary’s death or assumption. Nor is there any reference in any other church writings.
The Feast of the Assumption is a holy day of obligation in the Christian church.
