Clothed in the Sun
"A great sign appeared in the sky: a woman clothed in the sun, standing on the moon, with a crown of twelve stars." (Rev. 12:1)
This lovely image of the Church in the Apocalypse is also used to reflect on the Assumption of Mary. God saves Mary from the destruction of death the way God saves the Church from the destruction of evil. God raises Mary body and soul into heaven. Assumption is Mary's Resurrection.
