The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Clothed With The Sun
"Who is she that goeth up by the desert as a pilar of smoke of aromatical spices, of myrrh, and frankincense, and of all the powders of the perfumer? Thou art all fair , O my love, and there is not a spot in thee. My sister, my spouse, is a garden enclosed, a fountain sealed up." -Canticle 3,4
"O holy and immaculate virginity,
I know not by what praises to extol thee.
because whom the heavens
could not contain
thou hast borne in thy womb." -1st lesson, Little Office BVM
Let all mortal flesh keep silence
before such an awesome mystery!
