Is the assumption of Mary Biblical?
All About Mary
A: Like the dogma of Mary’s Immaculate Conception, the dogma of the Assumption is not explicitly stated in the Bible. The teaching that ‘at the end of her earthly course, Mary was assumed into heavenly glory, body and soul’ was dogmatically defined by Pius XII in 1950 in Munificentissimus Deus.
When was the Blessed Virgin Mary assumed into heaven?
August 15 is the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The fact that Mary was taken up – assumed – directly into heaven from here on earth is a strong reminder of one of the foundations of our faith.
Why do Protestants not believe in Mary?
The Roman Catholic Church reveres Mary, the mother of Jesus, as “Queen of Heaven.” However, there are few biblical references to support the Catholic Marian dogmas — which include the Immaculate Conception, her perpetual virginity and her Assumption into heaven. This is why they are rejected by Protestants.
