Mary: Image of What We Can Be (Mt 19:16-26; Lk 10:38-42; 11:27-28)
August 15, 2010 Length: 15:33
The readings presented by the Church on this day remind us of the most fundamental teachings about what we believe and who we are called to be as Christians. As we celebrate the Falling Asleep of the Mother of God, Fr Tom tells us that the Virgin Mary is the one who embodies hearing and keeping those most basic teachings.

"As I sit gazing out over the frigid tundra of the Arctic here on the Alaskan coast, so close to Siberia across the Bering Straits, I am listening to the most beautiful Christian music available—that of Ancient Faith Radio. Thank you for so encouraging me in this bleak, isolated, and bitterly cold Arctic region on the coast of Alaska. You are truly inspirational! Often I listen through the night until morning. What comfort I receive! Continue in your beautiful liturgical music programs!"
