PRAYER FOR THE ASSUMPTION OF MARY
Father in heaven, all creation rightly gives you praise,for all life and
all holiness come from you. In the plan of your wisdom she who bore the
Christ in her womb was raised body and soul in glory to be with him in 

heaven. May we follow her example in reflecting your holiness and join in
her hymn of endless love and praise. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen
