The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

 “Give us days of peace, watch over our journey, let us see your Son, filled with the joy of Heaven”

On 15th August,  we mark the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, when her body was taken up into Heaven with her soul. But we also think of the end of her earthly life, and we think of her coronation as Queen of Heaven. These scenes have been depicted in Christian art in connection with the Assumption for centuries.
