Assumption of Mary
The Assumption of Marry is observed On August 15. It is a Christian festival and celebrated every year in most part of the world. The day of Mary’s feast in the Catholic religion is very important. This is the main feast of the Blessed Virgin of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Christians believe that on this day Virgin Mary “completed the course of his earthly life, took the body and soul as heavenly glory.”
In Ancient time people have different assumption- people celebrate the day by public lighting and bonfires at night. There are several symbolic images and story related to that incident. In some other places, people throw the coin from their windows on the road and it is a symbol of prosperity. People believed that the blue colour is associated with the virgin mary because this colour is associated with the heaven colour and it is the sign of truth and clarity.
Christians mostly connect Lily with the Virgin Mary because it is a symbol of purity, simplicity and divinity. The history of this festival can be seen in the fourth century when Mary’s body was associated with heaven. However, this is a faith in a religious way, the actual observance of this day did not last until the 6th century. This was first celebrated in the Eastern churches as a festival – one day which reminds Virgin Mary of the death, resurrection and subsequent glory in heaven.
This idea spread quickly throughout Christianity and is now believed to be founded by many secrets. On November 1, 1950, Pope Pius VII declared Mary’s assassination as dogma. As a dogma, it is a necessary faith that all Catholics should adopt. Being away from this dogma is believed to be a departure from the divinity of faith.
