On this Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary

In 1950, in the wake of the horrors inflicted on the human body during World War II, Pope Pius XII formally defined the dogma faith that God raised Mary, body and soul, into Heaven in the apostolic constitution, Munificentissimus Deus. In this video meditation, Fr. Charles Trullols reflects on this truth the Church has believed and upheld in tradition since our earliest days. The CIC serves the men and women of Washington in their spiritual and intellectual development. Please support this important work, which is made almost entirely possible by the generosity of our benefactors.
