Pope Francis Calls for a ‘Spirit of Service’ on Solemnity of Mary’s Assumption

National Catholic Register
Pope Francis speaks to the crowd assembled in St. Peter’s Square on Aug. 15 for the recitation of the Angelus on the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

In his reflection before leading the Marian prayer, Pope Francis drew on the day’s Gospel reading — St. Luke’s account of Mary’s visitation.
