Happy Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary! On today’s show, Matt and Anna talk to Dr Anthony Lilles about Consecration to Jesus through Mary and the Blessed Mother’s role in contemplative prayer. Joe Heschmeyer will offer a defense of the Dogma of the Assumption, and Fr Hezekias will unpack the debate over whether the Blessed Mother died before being assumed into Heaven.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
