Message on the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

ROME, Italy

On the occasion of the Feast of the Assumption of Mary the association greetings come to us this year from Italy underlining the desire to carry a message of hope and welcome for all.

calendar.002“Mary, the humble woman who came from the peripheries in her country, … teaches us to live in this world with our eyes on heaven, and to strive to bring a heaven of justice, love and fellowship to our earth.” Points out the message.

Before her are the sufferings of migrants, elderly, sick, poor ... “Humanity is wounded and suffering but keeps on walking. Humanity has fallen, but stands up again and moves forward. Humanity is familiar with suffering and struggling, but does not surrender because there is fervent love.”

Mary reminds us that our goal is the final victory over sin and death.

May She, who “accompanied the first Christian community, help us to be witnesses of fellowship in every corner of the world and to take care for life, welcoming everyone, our brothers and sisters.”, concludes the message.
