The Assumption reminds us how Mary is the perfect example of how to be a child of God.  Mary set aside her own fears and accepted God’s calling without hesitation.  She lived her life obedient to God in every way and was entrusted with the care of Jesus.

Reflect on the Fourth Glorious Mystery:  “You are the glory of Jerusalem … you are the splendid boast of our people … God is pleased with what you have wrought. May you be blessed by the Lord Almighty forever and ever.” (Judith 15:9-10)

May we call to mind the goodness of Mary and how her life of God led her to the Grace of a Happy Death.

This year let us follow Mary’s example, live a life obedient to God’s calling so that we too may be blessed with the Grace of a Happy Death.

Read all the reflections in the “Jesus’ Guide to the New Year through the Rosary” series.
