Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Mary is taken up to heaven,
a chorus of Angels exults

My soul magnifies the Lord
And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior;
Because He has regarded the lowliness of His handmaid;
For behold, henceforth all generations shall call me blessed;
Because He who is mighty has done great things for me,
and holy is His name;
He has mercy on those who fear him
in every generation.
He has shown the strength of His arm,
He has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
and has exalted the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich He has sent away empty.
He has given help to Israel, his servant, mindful of His mercy
Even as he spoke to our fathers, to Abraham 
and to his posterity forever.

Considering the horrific persecution of Christians in Iraq for even being Christian, get to Mass.
Mary, Queen of Peace, pray for us.
