This is what took place inand many times throughout Church history, when the Church made official and infallible, what it had already taught for centuries.


This feast has been munificentissimus deus em since at least the 6th century, and probably much earlier than that. The belief in the Virgin Mary's assumption has been a part of the church since the days of the Apostles.

Although this doctrine munificentissimus deus em not supported by direct scriptural the evidence, it is nonetheless supported by implied scriptural proofs. This Marian dogma, like the other three of the four Marian dogmas, is often misunderstood by Catholics and misconstrued by non Catholics.

Lets first look at what it is not. What the assumption is not Assumption is not the same as Ascension.

Assumption of Mary

Jesus ascended into heaven, to ascend is to rise up by your own power, so Jesus raised himself up to heaven by His own power. Assumption means to munificentissimus deus em pulled up by another, this means that Mary was assumed by the power of God.


To say that Mary ascended into heaven is not munificentissimus deus em grammatically incorrect, it is also theologically wrong. My answer here discusses the role of Sacred Tradition and Sacred Scripture in the Church; and my answer here begins a discussion of the Magisterium of the Church.

These three are the grounds on which the Catholic Church can declare something to be a belief to be held by the entire Church. Briefly, the Church holds Sacred Tradition to be passed munificentissimus deus em from the apostles, just as the scriptures were: The Tradition here in question comes from the apostles and hands on what they received from Jesus' teaching and example and what they learned from the Holy Spirit.

Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraph 83 The Magisterium is the authority the Church claims, which it holds to be passed down from the apostles, to munificentissimus deus em Scripture and Tradition so as to guide the Church unerringly in her beliefs: The apostles entrusted the "Sacred deposit" of the faith the depositum fideicontained in Sacred Scripture and Tradition, to the whole of the Church.

Its authority in this matter is exercised in the name of Jesus Christ. This means that the task of interpretation has been entrusted to the bishops in communion with the successor of Peter, the Bishop of Rome. However, it seems fitting that Mary's body, which was by nature mortal, should be, in conformity with that of her Divine Sonsubject to the general law munificentissimus deus em death".

Many Catholics believe that she did not die at all, but was assumed directly into Heaven. The dogmatic definition within the Apostolic Constitution Munificentissimus Munificentissimus deus em which, according to Roman Catholic dogma, infallibly proclaims the doctrine of the Assumption leaves open the question of whether, in connection with her departure, Mary underwent bodily death.


It does not dogmatically define the point one way or the other, as shown by the words "having completed the course of her earthly life". The pope cited 1 Corinthians In this munificentissimus deus em Paul alludes to Genesis 3: The pope also mentioned in paragraph 26 Psalma psalm commemorating the return of the Ark of God to Munificentissimus deus em and lamenting its subsequent loss.

The second half of the psalm says that the loss will be recompensed in the New Covenant, and so it is hopefully prayed, "Arise, O Lord, into thy resting place: Since the Church sees this New Covenant ark in Mary, it understands that she was taken into Heaven in the same manner as the Lord — that is, body and soul.
