August 15th, Assumption of the Blessed Mother — Holy Day of Obligation

The Traditional Catholic Faith STILL keep August 15 as a Holy Day of Obligation.

Why because Our Lady said herself in the book of Luke that “for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.”  Luke 1; 48

She also said that she increases your faith in her son.  And Mary said:My soul doth magnify the Lord.”  Luke 1; 46

Therefore it is impossible to love her, Mary, more than Jesus, because the more you love Mary the more you will love her Son.

The spoken word was passed on to the original Christians the story of her Assumption into heaven, not by her own power but the power of God.
