Taken to Heaven. In the Eastern Churches, what we call the Assumption, they call the Dormition of Mary – her falling asleep in the Lord. A wonderful image to face death that may be soon or far away.
- How am I preparing to fall asleep in the Lord?
- How can I, like Mary, sing God’s praise?
- How can I, like Mary, look after a cousin or friend or neighbor in need of help?
