Taken Up

Today is the Feast of the Assumption. Some relevant links:

(1) Gregory DiPippo notes the medieval allegorical reading of the original Gospel reading for the Feast, at "New Liturgical Movement".

(2) Mark Gordon reflects on Mary as the icon of the Church, at "Vox Nova"

(3) I was interested to discover that the Feast of the Assumption is actually a big thing in Cleveland, Ohio, of all places; it has been consistently celebrated in Cleveland's Little Italy for 114 years, and has grown to be quite the celebration, with dinners, raffles, music, and fireworks for several days. Here is the schedule of events for Feast of the Assumption 2012.
