Feast of the Assumption

Feast of the Dormtion
( Assumption of Mary )

According to the Tradition coming to us from the Early Church, after the falling asleep of the Virgin Mother, she was buried, but her body did not suffer corruption.  When the tomb was opened, it was empty, filled with flowers and the fragrance of holiness.
