The Assumption of the Holy Mother of God

Thanks to Mike Hayes over at at Busted Halo for this great post with Fr. Jack Collins, CSP

Father in heaven,
all creation rightly gives you praise,
for all life and all holiness come from you.
In the plan of your wisdom
she who bore the Christ in her womb
was raised body and soul in glory to be with him in heaven.
May we follow her example in reflecting your holiness
and join in her hymn of endless love and praise.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Pray for the Canonization of Blessed William Joseph Chaminade

"The King of heaven enrolls you forever in the bodyguard of the Queen. Henceforth you will serve him by serving her whom he associated in his crown and in his glory, and you shall be in a special manner a soldier and missionary of Mary Immaculate for the people of God."
Blessed William Joseph Chaminade
