Feast-Day Photos...

I'm a little late getting these up, but it was such a wonderful Feast Day - and it's within the Octave!!

The Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate came to sing for the Feast Day - which just made it that little bit more special, as they are so filled with joy...

And the Mass itself...

I think the Assumption is one of my favourite feasts. After all, it just seems so right... if you were able to spare your mother the pains of death, of the separation of body and soul, wouldn't you want to do that?

Signum magnum apparuit in caelo: mulier amicta sole, et luna sub pedibus ejus, et in capite ejus corona duodecim.

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.

(From the Introit at Mass)
