The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven

God, the King of the universe, has granted you favours that surpass nature.

 The Most Holy Trinity

There is a great love of Jesus towards his faithful disciples, and towards sinners of contrite hearts, towards the vulnerable, meek, poor and needy.
