Pope Francis, On Mary, The Assumption and Taking Risks
carrying out its mission in the world, the Pope stressed that the Church “needs
the help of the Holy Spirit to not be held back through fear and calculation, to
not get used to walking within safe boundaries.” Departing from his prepared
text, he warned that these two attitudes lead the Church “to becoming an
administrative or bureaucratic Church that never takes risks.”
he said, the “Apostolic courage that the Holy Spirt ignites in us like a fire
helps us to surmount walls and barriers, it makes us creative and it spurs us to
set forth, journeying along unexplored or uncomfortable roads, offering help to
whoever we encounter.
August 15th each year, the Catholic Church remembers the Assumption of Our Lady
into Heaven. Different traditions hold that the Virgin Mary left this earthly
life between three and fifteen years after Christ’s death and Resurrection. She
was assumed into heaven, accounts say, as she reposed in eternal sleep – either
in Jerusalem or in Ephesus, in modern day Turkey.
