23 Dec

O Blessed Virgin Mary united to the victorious Christ in Heaven, you are the image and first-flowering of the Church as she is to be perfected in the world to come.
You shine forth as a sign of sure hope and solace for the pilgrim People of God. In your Assumption, you manifest the fullness of Redemption and appear as the spotless image of the Church responding in joy to the invitation of the Bridegroom, your Son, who is the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
Grant that we may follow your example on earth thereby imitating your Son as well and being enabled to share your glory with Him for all eternity.
