For us Catholics would trust SP.Maria taken to heaven we can because we believe that Mary was conceived without blemish. We believe that Mary was freed from sin thanks to the grace of God, that Mary without sin because he will not suffer the consequences of sin and death. We believe that with the power of obedience and loyalty, the Blessed Virgin Mary at the end of his life in this world received body and soul into heavenly glory.
The background of our faith, that Mary was taken to heaven, is because Mary is the Mother of the Son of God Begotten, who has conquered sin and death by His sacrifice and death on the cross. In such a close relationship between Mary and Jesus Christ in the administration of his redeeming work, then Mary is also the first man to go up to heaven.
Gospel of Luke (1:39-56) contains the story of two women, who both share faith, hope and happiness as a woman preparing to become a mother. Elisabet as elderly people who previously was barren, and Mary a girl betrothed yet contained. Reveals in his story was how great tera power of God to hold and maintain a life! God is able to raise living from the barren womb, but also from the tombs of the dead. And the long journey of Mary of Nazareth to the mountains of Judea to visit Elizabeth is also a picture coming Kingdom of God.
Mary is a model for us all, and raised to heaven to convince us that we really have hope. What happened to The Virgin Daughter of Nazareth at the end of his life in this world we will be, if we remain always faithful and obedient as she is. With Assumption Mary shows us the way to God, the way to heaven, the way we should go in our lives. Mary shows the way that the people who know consider themselves as "little people", as "children", as a "poor man", who feel the need of God''s mercy always! Mary, Queen of the world, opened and showed to everyone, each person but also to all the nations, the power of God''s love. God will do is "decreasing those in power of the throne, exalted those of low and he bestows all good things to those who are hungry, and sent the rich away with empty hands" (Lk 1:52-53). Maria truly a model for anyone who wants to be happy!
Gospel on the Feast of the Assumption is inspiring encounters with other meanings. Mary and Elizabeth encounter is an encounter two believers. They were filled with the Holy Spirit. They encounter into joy and happiness. They share the grace and love. That encounter on the basis of the true love of God.
Our daily life is also full of the encounter with others. Whether it''s a family of our own or other people who are around us. Our encounter with fellow actually had an encounter of love. We bring Christ in us. When we met with our neighbor, the love of Christ in us should radiate out. People we meet can feel the same love of Christ.
True hospitality of a believer flow from being with Christ. The close relationship with Christ will appear out and felt by the people around him. What about the U.S.?
Our reflection on Mary assumed into heaven, we close with these words Pope Benedict XVI:
"In view of Mary in glory in heaven, we understand that this world is not our definitive homeland., And if we live watching eternal things (heavenly), then at some point we are going to take part in the glory of the same, and the world we will become more and more beautiful. If so, we must never lose our clarity of heart and peace, despite being in the middle of a thousand difficulties. sparkle-sparkle marks the Blessed Virgin was taken to heaven will shine more brilliant, when the shadows sorrow, suffering and violence appears in the horizon of our lives. Let us believe, that from the Maria followed footprints us with a gentle concern, get rid of Kesu-raman in moments of darkness and sorrow. He gives certainty to his hand as a mother we. continue Let us continue our life under the guidance of Mary "
Yes Mary, you are able to give joy and happiness to Elizabeth and her unborn baby. Help me to be able to bring Christ to others through life and encounter everyday. Amen.
