Year of Faith

On August 15 in the Western Church Liturgical Calendar we celebrate the great Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Most of our Eastern Christian brethren also acknowledge the same great event on this Feast, calling it the Dormition of the Mother of God. Some join us in the celebration today and others, following another ancient Christian calendar, commemorate in just a few days. The Feast is ancient and of profound importance - for reasons which sometimes are not fully understood.
