I have no idea what’s going on, but we’ve started singing so it must be some kind of celebration!
The Assumption is called Maria ten Hemelopneming in Dutch. The church looked stunning, but I didn’t really get any photos of it. What I do have, I can share!
The Mary Altar was all decked out, and the statue even more so.
Before the evening Mass we had a Holy Hour, with a procession, Adoration, with Rosary and lots of Marian hymns.
The details on the Mary Altar caught my eye especially yesterday. The, the – I don’t know what they’re called – show scenes from the life of Our Blessed Lady, beginning with her Immaculate Conception (deftly portrayed with SS. Joachim and Anna having a bit of a smooch) and ending with her Glorious Coronation.
A (belated) happy feast to you all from this poor blogger!
