Maria Himmelfahrt

Wednesday was the Catholic Feast of the Assumption, a holy day of obligation. Mary’s body is up there physically in heaven. Jesus Christ is also bodily up there in the clouds; that is the Feast of the Ascension, celebrated forty days after Easter. Easter Sunday Jesus rose from the dead. But Jesus is not merely immortal. He is God. Or did you know that already? But the true test of the Catholic believer is His Virgin Mother. It’s hard sometimes to swallow this stuff. But, somehow, the Holy Father in Rome grabs the faint-of-faith by the hair and rams it in.

Underneath daily reality which seems on the surface to be reasonable is another reality that no one can really understand.

Or at least that's my understanding.

The majority are living an unreality that makes life bearable for them.

As Lou Reed sings, "We need a busload of faith to get by." But we don't need religion.
