My homily for the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary as preached during the live-streamed 9.30am Mass from Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton.
The readings proclaimed were Apocalypse 11:19, 12:1-6, 10; 1 Corinthians 15:20-26; Luke 1:39-56.
“Having received God’s promise to her via the angel Gabriel, Mary sets out to visit Elizabeth, where Mary’s faith in God’s promise is confirmed. In light of that confirmation, Mary raises her voice in praise of God. We, too, are called to have faith in God’s promise to humankind and to raise our voices with Mary in praise of God, the faithful One.”
