Assumption homilies

Aug 13, 2011




It would be difficult to do better in seeking to appreciate the significance of this feast, than to look back over the six homilies Pope Benedict has given for the Feast of the Assumption.


In each homily he seeks to communicate something that he knows to be essential in our 21st century appreciation of this feast.
