On August 15th, the Catholic Church celebrates the birth into eternal life of Mary, the mother of Jesus. This feast celebrates the ancient Christian teaching that Mary, because of her cooperation with and unique role in God´s saving plan, is the first member of the Church to experience the fullness of resurrected life secured for all by Christ´s own life-giving death and resurrection. In Mary, the Church and the whole communion of saints sees itself, glorious and risen, united to the Risen Lord Jesus in the fulfillment of God´s universal Reign of justice and compassion for all.
