Easter in August: The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin

Our Lord could have left us only with the pledge of his own resurrection, Easter in April, hope of eternal life. But he has given us too the pledge of his mohter's Assumption, Easter in August, additional hope of eternal life: the woman as well as the man, the handmaid as well as the Lord, the Church as well as the Christ, creation as well as Creator.
