Solemnity of the Assumption
Liturgy of the Hours
Hymn, Evening Prayer I
“In the words of Scripture, you appear in beauty. Your virginal body is entirely holy, entirely chaste, entirely the house of God, so that for this reason also it is henceforth a stranger to decay: a body changed, because a human body, to a pre-eminent life of incorruptibility, but still a living body, excelling in splendor, a body inviolate and sharing in the perfection of life.”
Office of Readings for the Feast
Quotation from St. Germanus of Constantinople
……………The Divine Office for this Solemnity of Our Blessed Lady is so beautiful, that anyone who has time to read the entire Liturgy of the Hours for the Feast of the Assumption will not be disappointed.
Happy Feast Day everyone!
