On the Solemnity of the Assumption

Today, we celebrate the Assumption, the day Mary, the Mother of God was assumed into Heaven.

This is my new favorite Ave Maria, by Gabriel Faure sung by two high school girls from Cincinatti. This is what I will be singing tonight at Holy Mass.

Hail Mary, full of grace,
the Lord is with you.
Blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of death. Amen.
