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.
