Mary’s assumption into Heaven is a manifestation of her unique vocation. God’s plan for her and or us included her call, the gifts given to her, and her response.

Am I open to the presence of the Holy Spirit in my life? Am I attuned to God’s voice? Am I open to receiving gifts? Am I prepared to respond to God’s plan for me?

O Holy Spirit, abide in me today. May I be open to your presence and our guidance. May I fulfill God’s plan for me.
