Feast of the Assumption Coloring Page: August 15th
August 15th commemorates Mary’s Assumption into Heaven. At the end of her earthly life, Mary was taken to Heaven, body and soul. Though she was human, she was born without original sin. This meant she would not undergo the punishment of being separated from her body at the end of her life. St. Francis de Sales once explained it this way: “What son, if he could, would not bring his mother back to life, and take her, after death, into paradise?” The Assumption honors both her holy life here on earth and her title as Mother of God.
