Click here to download and listen to this homily (6 minutes) given by Fr Thomas Weise at St Catherine of Siena parish in Petersburg, Alaska. We celebrate that Mary was assumed body and soul into heaven. Mary first conceived Christ in her soul making room in her heart for him, than she received her first communion at the incarnation and it urge her to visit her cousin Elizabeth in her time of need. May we make room in our hearts for Jesus and having received communion head out to help others.
