August 15
Feast of the Assumption of Mary

It’s the Season of Lughnasa
~ the Celtic harvest ~
time to reap what you sow and
do a jig
around the wonder of it all —
whether the year has been good or lean
or something in between.

So, is it any surprise
that this is also the season
when Mary took a breath
spiralled her way into heaven?

From the depths of the earth within your soul,
Mary beckons
you to come along for the ride
and rise into the glory of your
wonder-filled self.

Give yourself a lift today.
Eat sweet cakes and ice cream.
Wear something flowing that rises to the occasion.
Do a little dance.
Celebrate all things that end
so you can begin again.
