Feast of the Assumption

Dogma of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
declared by Pope Pius XII on Nov. 1, 1950.
"the Immaculate Mother of God, Mary ever Virgin, when the course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into the glory of heaven."

In a very early messages given in Medjugorje,
Our Lady states in response to a question asked
if she went to Heaven before or after death:

"I am the Mother of God and the Queen of Peace.
I went to Heaven before death."
