At 12 o'clock today, Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Holy Father Benedict XVI on the balcony overlooking the inner courtyard of the Apostolic Palace of Castel Gandolfo to pray the Angelus with the faithful and pilgrims present. These are the words of the Pope in introducing the Marian prayer:
Dear brothers and sisters,
In the middle of August, the Christians of East and West jointly celebrate the Feast of the Assumption of Mary into heaven. In the Catholic Church, the dogma of the Assumption - as is known - was proclaimed during the Holy Year of 1950 by my venerable Predecessor, the Servant of God Pope Pius XII. This memory, however, is rooted in the faith of the early centuries of the Church.
In the East, is still called "Dormition of the Virgin." In an ancient mosaic of the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome, inspired by its own icon of the East " Dormition ", depicts the Apostles who, informed by the Angels at the end of the earthly Mother of Jesus, gathered around the bed of the Virgin . At the center is Jesus who holds in her arms a little girl is Mary, she became the "small" for the Kingdom, and conducted by the Lord into Heaven.
In the Gospel of St. Luke's today's liturgy, we read that Mary "in those days got up and went with haste into the hill country, in a city of Judah" ( Luke 1.39). In those days Mary arose and hastened from Galilee to a town near Jerusalem, in order to visit her cousin Elizabeth. Today we contemplate the climb to the mountain of God and enter into the heavenly Jerusalem, "clothed with the sun, the moon under her feet and on her head a crown of twelve stars" ( Rev 12.1).
The biblical account of the Apocalypse, we read in the liturgy of this feast, is about a struggle between the woman and the dragon, between good and evil. St. John seems to propose anew the very first pages of Genesis, which tell the story of darkness and drama of the sin of Adam and Eve. Our ancestors were defeated by the evil one in the fullness of time, Jesus, Adam, and Mary, New Eve, definitely win the enemy, and this is the joy of this day! With the victory of Jesus over evil, even death are the inner and physical losses. Mary was the first to pick up the Son of God , Jesus , now baby, now is the first to be with Him in glory of heaven.
It 'a great mystery that we celebrate today, is mostly a mystery of hope and joy for all of us in Mary we see the goal towards which all those who know how to tie their lives to Jesus, who know how to follow as he Mary did. This feast speaks of our future, then, tells us that we too will be with Jesus in the joy of God and invites us to have courage, to believe that the power of the Resurrection of Christ can work in us and make us men and women who every day try to live as resurrected, bringing the darkness of evil in the world, the light of the good.
