THE ASSUMPTION OF OUR LADY INTO HEAVEN
"I AM THE IMMACULATION CONCEPTION" -
Lourdes 25th March 1858, THE FEAST OF THE ANNUNCIATION.
"THE SINLESS ONE"
Death and corruption are the result of sin - so no sin therefore
NO DEATH AND NO CORRUPTION
"BLESSED IS SHE WHO BELIEVED"
Her life was a life of extraordinary faith and trust in God's
goodness and love.
"He will be called Son of the Most High"
"He will SAVE His people and rule over the House of David"
Yet, He was born in a stable,
forced to flee into a strange land,
rejected by His own people,
condemned to death and executed as a common criminal.
So it is today that we celebrate Our Lady's faith and trust in the GOODNESS and LOVE of GOD.
JUST AS MARY RECEIVED HER SON INTO OUR WORLD, HER SON RECEIVED HER INTO HIS WORLD.
"The Almighty has done great things for me. Holy is His name"
A conundrum : GOD IS NOWHERE OR IS NOW HERE!
Equality or Inequality? When a King rules his wife is the Queen, but when a Queen rules her husband is a Prince. And they talk about equality between the sexes!
Women's styles may change but their designs remain the same!
Men have sight - women insight!
All men are born free - then they get married!!!
My wife has all the electric gadgets going and still craves more. She asked me what I was buying her for her birthday, so I told her
AN ELECTRIC CHAIR!!!
And a gem to end!
Little Johnny moved down South into the country where there was no Catholic school. On his first day he was asked to say the prayers he knew. He said the 'Our Father' and then went to say the 'Hair Mary', he was told, "we don't want to hear about her". So he began to say the Creed. When he came to "born of the ...." he came to a sudden stop. "Oh heck" he said "here she comes again - what shall I do now sir?"!!!
