Mary is the prototype of the Church in pilgrimage on earth. She is also, as the Assumpta, the prototype of the permanent Church, established in heaven.

- Edward Shillebeeck 


What son would not bring his mother back to life and would not bring her into paradise after her death if he could?

- St Francis de Sales on the Assumption 


Let us now give praise to Mary, so prudent in preparing for death; and whilst we exalt her glory, we will unite with the nine angel choirs who, on her Assumption into heaven, escorted her!

- Assumption novena prayer
