Today is the Feast of the Ascension. The Blessed Mother is the most perfect disciple. She was born full of grace and has never been controlled by her enemies or demons all her life. So when she ended her earthly life, she did not have to go through the purgatory process. Her soul and body were lifted directly to God's presence to be completely redeemed. Today's Mass is also a special prayer for your family, Pray to the ascended Mother, that she may turn to Jesus, and bless the peace of your house, and grant you to follow the example of the Blessed Mother, having faith always, and keeping silent the word, and obeying the purpose. Happy Assumption Day!
