THE ASSUMPTION: WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR US? The Homily

INTRODUCTION:A BRIEF REFLECTION

WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR US? The Homily of the Assumption

If God chooses someone to be His mother and be born in the Flesh, she is going to be a Special Person…as was Mary! She protected her Son, from the birth to the grave, and beyond! God had to be pleased with her….and would not let her body undergo corruption! That’s what we believe, declared in 1950 by Pope Pius as the Assumption of Mary, body & soul into heaven at her death!
What it means to us is that we need to keep close to Jesus and keep Jesus close to us…to achieve a meaningful, eternal life!
check out the scriptures of the day:
Rv 11:19a; 12:1-6a, 10ab
1 Cor 15:20-27
Lk 1:39-56

DOES JESUS HEAR US IN OUR FEAR?

It’s when things are the roughest that we think He’s not with us, Jesus that is……That was the case of the Apostles….as well at 3 am when their boat was being tossed around…They knew FEAR….We know what Fear is….when we feel alone, when we yell out and there is no one to listen to us or rescue us. However, if we have an intimate relationship with the Lord, He is there to rescue us!
Peter was in that position. He was in FEAR, terrified, and recognized his friend, Jesus, who reached out to him and rescued him!
As God and Man Jesus reaches out to us when we are in Fear….but we have to have that intimate relationship with Him! Through Prayer, intimate conversation, He comes to us to relieve our Fear.
