Doctrine of the Assumption
Because of Mary’s participation in the Incarnation of Christ, she was honored as a unique member of the Church. Just as Solomon brought the Ark of the Covenant to the Temple (1 Kings 8:17-21), Mary, as the Ark of the New Covenant, was brought to heaven to dwell where Christ is.

The west tympana of the Great Upper Church tell of significant events in the history of Marian doctrine, including the definition of the dogma of the Assumption in 1950 by Pope Pius XII . Though the Assumption of Mary is not documented in the New Testament, it is expounded in Section 966 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

Finally the Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, when the course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things, so that she might be more fully conformed to her Son, the Lord of lords and conqueror of sin and death.

The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin is a singular participation in her Son’s Resurrection and an anticipation of the resurrection of other Christians:

In giving birth you kept your virginity; in your Dormition you did not leave the world, O Mother of God, but were joined to the source of Life. You conceived the living God and, by your prayers, will deliver our souls from death.

The Assumption is also affirmed by Pope Pius XII in his apostolic letter Munificentissimus Deus:

Now God has willed that the Blessed Virgin Mary should be exempted from this general rule [death]. She, by an entirely unique privilege, completely overcame sin by her Immaculate Conception, and as a result she was not subject to the law of remaining in the corruption of the grave, and she did not have to wait until the end of time for the redemption of her body.
Join Br. Jason Lewis of the Marian Fathers at the National Shrine of the Divine Mercy as he explains what the Assumption of Mary is and why it is so important that it is called a "Dogma."

Almighty ever-living God, who assumed the Immaculate Virgin Mary, the Mother of your Son, body and soul into heavenly glory, grant we pray, that, always attentive to the things that are above, we may merit to be sharers of her glory.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

The 54-Day Rosary Miracle Novena
Starting Saturday, Aug 15, on the Solemnity of the Assumption of our Blessed Virgin Mary, and concluding on Wednesday, October 7, on the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.
We strongly encourage everyone to join in this powerful 54-Day Rosary Miracle Novena.
This is a commitment to pray one rosary per day for 54 days for this sole intention: For the grace of profound repentance & conversion to Christ Jesus, both in the Church and in the world , to open up the flood gates of Divine Mercy upon all people.
This is a response to a nationwide call by thousands of Catholics, as spearheaded by major Catholic organizations and ministries.
If you would like to pray this rosary with our parish community, join us!
Our parish Rosary prayer time every day is at 7pm via Zoom.
The Rosary prayers are simple and can be recited in about half hour each time.

Click here for the Zoom link.
Are there special Rosary prayers attached to the novena? Yes.
The Rosary prayers recommended for this novena are very simple but powerful.
Each Hail Mary is a rare and beautiful rose which we lay at Mary’s feet.
We offer spiritual snow-white roses for the Joyful Mysteries, blood-red roses for the Sorrowful Mysteries, royal-purple roses for the Glorious Mysteries and bright-yellow roses for the Luminous Mysteries.

These spiritual roses, bound in a wreath of Spiritual Communion, are presented with brief prayers in between the decades.
For example, in the 1st Joyful Mystery, we pray this, addressing our Blessed Mother: "I bind these snow-white roses with a petition for the grace of humility and humbly lay this bouquet at your feet."
Another example: in the 3rd Glorious Mystery, we pray: "I bind these royal-purple roses with a petition for the grace of receiving the Holy Spirit and lay this bouquet at your feet."
There are brief meditations before each decade, directed to our Blessed Mother as we reflect on the life, death and resurrection of her Son.

How to pray this Novena
The 54-Day Rosary Novena consists of one Rosary each day for the first 27 days “in petition”; then, one Rosary each day for the next 27 days in “thanksgiving.” Thus, this Novena simply consists in praying one Rosary every day for 54 days, technically 6 sets of 9-day novenas.
Origin of this 54-Day Rosary Novena
In Italy on March 3, 1884 (the same year Pope Leo XIII penned the prayer to St. Michael) young Fortuna Agrelli experienced an apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary as our Lady of Pompeii, accompanied by St. Catherine of Sienna and St. Dominic ( see image).
Fortuna was suffering from 3 incurable diseases. Doctors had classified her case as hopeless.
Upon seeing Our Lady, Fortuna exclaimed “Queen of the Holy Rosary, be gracious to me, restore me to health! I have already prayed to Thee in a novena, O Mary, but have not yet experienced Thy aid. I am so anxious to be cured!”
“Child,” responded the Blessed Virgin, “you have invoked Me by various titles and have always obtained favors from Me. Now, since you have called Me by that title so pleasing to Me, ‘Queen of the Most Holy Rosary’, I can no longer refuse the favor you petition; for this name is most precious and dear to Me. Make three novenas, and you shall obtain all.”
On another occasion, Our Lady appeared to the young girl and said, “Whoever desires to obtain favors from Me should make three novenas of the prayers of the Rosary, and three novenas in thanksgiving.”
Obeying Our Lady’s instructions, the young girl was healed and restored to perfect health and thus began the tradition of the Miraculous 54-Day Rosary Novena.

Our Lady of Victory, Queen of Heaven and of the Most Holy Rosary, pray for us who have recourse to Thee!
Why are we praying this Miraculous Novena at this time?

“Children, great tribulations are getting near so that you prepare spiritually; do not let go of the Holy Rosary, because it is the greatest protection that Heaven has given you.” – St. Pio of Pietrelcina
“Grab your rosaries! We are going into battle!”
