August 15, 2019: Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary
Preaching for the Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary, Carolyn Osiek, RSCJ offers a reflection on the promise of the day as revealed in the readings:
"Mary too is caught up in this great process of realizing the effects of the resurrection. It’s not a promise of peace during the course of the process; rather, it’s a promise of tension and struggle. We live in time and we touch eternity. "
Carolyn Osiek, RSCJ, was professor of New Testament at Catholic Theological Union at Chicago for 26 years, and is professor emerita from Brite Divinity School at Texas Christian University. She retired in 2009 to become provincial archivist of the Society of the Sacred Heart, United States-Canada Province.
