Feast Day Fun: Assumption!

BV MaryAugust 15th is the Feast of the Assumption!

Go to Mass today!

This is a Holy Day of Obligation…it’s the Feast Day commemorating the 4th Glorious Mystery of the Rosary. Mary’s body was taken up into Heaven.  Mary’s body was the First Tabernacle of Jesus…it makes sense that her body would remain in Heaven after her life on earth!

This Feast Day is a great excuse to decorate with pictures of our Blessed Mother. You can keep them up all week until next Friday August 22, the Feast of the Queenship of Mary (…or all Month as this month’s dedication is to the Immaculate Heart of Mary)

DIY garden stone

Make a Mother Mary Mosaic Garden Stone!  We used an old cookie tin, a bent coat hanger and some concrete along with these little pieces of colored stone and glass…13 years ago…and it’s still in our garden!

revolving rosary spiritual bouquet

Draw attention to the 4th Glorious Mystery of the Rosary: the Assumption of Mary, as you say your family Rosary.

Do you have the Revolving Rosary or the  Spiritual Bouquet of Prayer Petal Flowers  Cathletics Craft Kits? These paper crafts keep little hands busy while saying the Rosary, one decade at a time.

Our eldest crafted her way through many decades of the Rosary as a toddler…making the prayer-packed paper flowers and learning her prayers at the same time!
