August 22 is the Memorial of the Queenship of Mary. But where is that in the Bible?
Today Catholics celebrate the Memorial of the Queenship of the Virgin Mary. Is this some idiosyncratic idea, unique to the Catholic Church? No. Pope Pius XII established August 22 as the Memorial of the Queenship of Mary in 1954; but Mary’s role as queen over the universal Church finds

One very good case for Mary’s assumption into heaven has been provided by Science in the past few years. Researchers have learned that there is an exchange of cells between the developing fetus and the pregnant woman, so that each contains some part of the other’s DNA.
Even years after the child has been born and has grown to adulthood, a mother retains some of her child’s cells in her heart, in her brain, in her blood.
On August 15, Catholics celebrate the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Most years (although not this year, since it falls on a Monday), the date is a holy day of obligation. The Church in her wisdom wants us to understand how important Mary is in our devotional life–and practicing Catholics

BREAKING: In Mississippi, two nuns found slain in the home they shared
