Assumption of Mary History
The Assumption of Mary commemorates her ascension into heaven. Traditionally, Roman Catholics believe that Mary, the Virgin mother of Jesus, never physically died and instead ascended into heaven.
Mary, as the mother of God, is believed by some Christian faiths to have lived a life without sin. Some early-church theologians believed that since she and Christ were both without sin that Mary must have been raised to heaven just as Christ was. This belief started the feast of the Assumption of Mary.
The Assumption is typically observed on August 15, except if this date falls on a Saturday or Monday. For this case, some Christian denominations observe it on the adjacent Sunday instead.
