Homily #100815 ( 18min) Play - Today we celebrate the Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary, body and soul into Heaven and Fr. Bonaventure preaches on the connection between Mary's prerogatives to the Kingship of Christ and so relates her dignity to his, her Queenship to his Kingship , His Ascension to to her Assumption. All granted by one and the same decree of predestination revealed by Paul in Eph 1:3-10. And given this connection between Mary, the New Eve, and Jesus, the New Adam, Father stresses the connection of upholding the honor of Our Lady with the general defense of Christianity against secularism and atheism.
