(Petition Prayer to Our Lady of The Assumption)
We pronounce, declare, and define that it is a divinely revealed dogma that the Immaculate Mother of God, ever Virgin Mary, when the course of Her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory. If anyone, which God forbid, should dare voluntarily to deny or to call into doubt what has been defined by Us, let him know that he has fallen away completely from the divine and Catholic Faith.
– Pope Pius XII, 1950

Our Lady of the Assumption Prayer
Mary, Queen assumed into heaven, I rejoice that after years of heroic martyrdom on earth, you have at last been taken to the throne prepared for you in heaven by the Holy Trinity.

Lift my heart with you in the glory of your Assumption above the dreadful touch of sin and impurity. Teach me how small earth becomes when viewed from heaven. Make me realize that death is the triumphant gate through which I shall pass to your Son, and that someday my body shall rejoin my soul in the unending bliss of heaven.
From this earth, over which I tread as a pilgrim, I look to you for help. I ask for this favor: (Mention your request).
When my hour of death has come, lead me safely to the presence of Jesus to enjoy the vision of my God for all eternity together with you.
