August 15, The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Mary, Queen of every heart, accept all that we are and bind us to Jesus with the bonds of love that we may be yours forever and may be able to say in all truth: “I belong to Jesus through Mary.” Our Mother, Assumed into Heaven and Queen of the Universe, ever-Virgin Mother of God, obtain for us what we ask for if it be for the glory of God and the life of the world.

Through your prayers, may our souls be filled with an intense desire to be like you, a humble vessel of the Holy Spirit. When our hour of death has come, lead us safely to the presence of Jesus to enjoy the vision of God for all eternity together with you.
