The Assumption of Mary


                        The Vision of Heaven


Mary’s summertime feast expands our vision from earth to heaven,

From time to eternity, from the human to the divine;


As she is now in heaven, our sure hope is that one day we shall share this vision:

To see God face to face,

To live in the circle of love which never ends, to be alive in the light of joy that never fades.


This is what the human heart longs for, happiness that will last, joy that nobody can take from us, the eternal gift of God.

All that is human is part of heaven, all that is good, beautiful, all that is true, all that is alive.


Love that lasts through life, friendship that does not fade,

The good we do and try to do, all will live with us in heaven.


Our hope is to bring to God a life lived in love,

And the efforts to live in his gospel,

And to be remembered in kindness and compassion,

And for the good we tried to do and the love we tried to share.


This feast today

Lifts our eyes beyond smoky cities,

To the new and eternal city of God,

Attunes our ears beyond any strident cry,

To the silent music of the world’s creator,

Put us in touch with the fragrance of God

And the touch of the Father of the world,

Gentle, healing, making whole.


This feast today reminds us all of our immense dignity as children of God,

A dignity that lasts beyond this life

Into the joy and the light of eternity.


We lift our eyes this day and see the dignity of the one who has gone before us:

Mary, mother of Jesus, Mary, mother of God.
