The Feast of the Assumption

I hope you all have a blessed Feast of the Assumption.

In addition to attending Mass for this Holy Day of Obligation, don't miss the wonderful recipes and ideas posted over at Catholic Cuisine and Catholic Family Vignettes for celebrating this most special day!

Novena to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary II

Majestic Queen of Heaven and Mistress of the Angels, you received from God the power and command to crush the head of satan. Therefore, we humbly beg of you, send forth the legions of Heaven, that under your command they may seek out all evil spirits, engage them everywhere in battle, curb their pride, and hurl them back into the pit of hell. “Who is like unto God?”

With firm confidence we present ourselves before you, our most loving Mother, afflicted and troubled as we are, and we beg you to let us understand the love you have for us by granting this petition, if it is according to the Will of God and profitable for our salvation: (mention your request).

Good and tender Mother, you shall ever be our hope and the object of our love. Mother of God, send forth the Holy Angels to defend us and drive far from us the cruel foe.

Holy Angels and Archangels, defend and keep us.


  1. Thanks to your inspirations, and Marci's Summer with the Saints, a friend and I are following your example. Today, our families celebrated the feast of the Assumption with Assumpta Salad, Egg Frittata and herb bread. All of our kids made flowers for Mary and colored Holy cards. We all had a great time. I enjoy seeing all that you do with your beautiful family. ~Shelly
