Aug 15 – Homily – Fr Elias: Assumption of the Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate
Homily #130815bs ( 16min) Play - Father Elias on the Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary preaches on the meaning of this feast, why our Lord brought Mary to heaven, body and soul at the end of her life. He ties this to her role as Mother of God at Nazareth and Bethlehem but also to her participation in the redemption at Calvary which fulfilled the prophecy of Simeon that a sword shall pierce her heart that the thoughts of nations shall be revealed.
