The Blessed Mother and the 2 Mysteries of the Assumption

Guido Reni, ‘Assumption of the Virgin Mary’, c. 1638-39

COMMENTARY: Mary’s assumption is not ‘just’ a special privilege for her, ‘conceived without sin.’ It tells us that what began with Jesus’ resurrection, already realized body and soul in Mary, is what God intends for all ‘who love him.’
