St. Magdalen's Pick of the Month: The Assumption
The dogma of the Assumption teaches that at the end of her time on earth, Mary was taken up—body and soul—into heaven. There she sits at her Son’s right hand, as Queen of Heaven and Earth. The foundation for the teaching is rooted in Scripture, specifically in John’s mysterious and apocalyptic vision recorded in Revelation 12. Packed with great material, this study examines the dogma of the Assumption of Mary, as well as the many facets of the identity of the woman in the Apostle John’s vision. It also explains how John’s vision in Revelation is the dramatic fulfillment of the promise God made back in the Garden of Eden: the "first gospel."
