tes enable us to show clearly that Mary's Assumption reveals the nobility and dignity of the human body.
Mary entered into glory because she welcomed the Son of God in her virginal womb and in her heart. By looking at her, the Christian learns to discover the value of his own body and to guard it as a temple of God, in expectation of the resurrection.
The Assumption, a privilege granted to the Mother of God, thus has immense value for the life and destiny of humanity.
Pope John Paul II
