60 Years Ago Today

60 years ago today (1950 November 1), Pope Pius XII defined the Assumption of Mary as dogma.

“by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, and by our own authority, we pronounce, declare, and define it to be a divinely revealed dogma: that the Immaculate Mother of God, the ever Virgin Mary, having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory.”----MUNIFICENTISSIMUS DEUS
