It’s a great feast today. Celebrate it with a festival of good reading.

Always begin with David Scott’s overview.

Then get the patristic take.

Proceed to Jim Davila for the OT foreshadowings.

Buy a good book — like Stephen J. Shoemaker’s The Ancient Traditions of the Virgin Mary’s Dormition and Assumption. The author includes full texts and detailed scholarly analysis of the ancient traditions regarding the end of the Virgin Mary’s earthly life. (My review is here.)

And last, but not least: Pray for me!
