14th after Pentecost

I have no idea what’s going on, but we’ve started singing so it must be some kind of celebration!

Assumptio

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.

(Sorry for the blurry)

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.
