Section 1 – Assumption

“Finally the Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, when the course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen of all things, so that she might be more fully conformed to her Son, the Lord of lords and conqueror of sin and death.”

Pius XII, Munificentissimus Deus (1950)
