Catholic Word of the Week (October 10, 2011)

Dormition: The feast of the falling asleep of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Also known as the Assumption of Mary, this feast is celebrated August 15th and is a Holy Day of Obligation (unless it falls on a Saturday or Monday). Assumption is a more fitting term for the feast since it celebrates not only the end of Mary's earthly life, but the fact that she was assumed, body and soul, into heaven.
