Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Signum magnum apparuit in caelo: mulier amicta sole, et luna sub pedibus ejus, et in capite ejus corona stellarum duodecim.
(A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.)
--from the Introit of the Mass for the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Happy feast day, dear friends!


  1. How very beautiful!

    Mary, our Mother, pray for us.

  2. Ya can't beat van Eyck. Mary must be reading Is 7:14.

  3. Thank you very much, Robert, Joann, kkollwitz, and Nancy. How good of you it was to write such nice words, and how happy I am to read them! May God bless you all, and may Our Lady protect you all.
