"Mary Assumed into heaven is the certainty that Jesus' resurrection has meant that our life does not end with the earthly horizon. Having her in front of our eyes is not an abstract, pious thought, irrelevant to our daily lives. On the contrary! She gives us courage. She encourages us not to be overcome by fear of evil. Mary assumed into heaven helps us to walk with our eyes on heaven, but with our feet on the ground. Looking at the opening of the sky, she set out to go to "Elizabeth". That is, the others. That is how it is! Mary Assumed into heaven makes us look upwards, where our goal is. Up there, however, we get there by walking with our feet on the ground and going through our neighbours."
