Franciscan Crown: Assumption of Mary

We finish off the Franciscan Crown with the final two Glorious mysteries. These next two (Assumption and Coronation) can be combined or just one of them used. It seems like the Assumption of Mary is the more traditional of the two.  After her life on earth was over Mary was taken to heaven, there is some differences as to if she died before hand or if was she put to sleep and then brought to heaven. In a matter of days we will celebrate this feast as well as the Dormition of the Theotokos. Let us all turn to our heavenly mother, Mary this month and reflect on the choices that she made in her life to live  closer to the Lord. What would we do if we were in the same situation? Mary said Yes, and most of us hem and haw over what to do. As Pope Francis reminded us at World Youth Day The Lord calls us all by name and wants to be apart of our lives all we need to do is make some room and say “yes” every once in a while to this call.
