Scriptural Rosary
Marys Assumption
Grace Of A Happy Death

"Amen I say to you, there are some of them that stand here,
that shall not taste death, till they see the
Son of man coming in his kingdom."
-Matthew 16:28

Catholic Rosary Myteries

Marys Assumption is the fourth of the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary. One of the most glorious events in the life of Jesus and Mary Mother of Jesus is the Assumption of Mary, body and soul into heaven.

Some think it is called this because we assume Mary was taken up into heaven. But this is not so.

The Assumption is a dogma of the Catholic faith and it can be deduced from Scriptures.

Below are some verses to use to enhance your Rosary prayers and meditations on the Marys Assumption.

  • "Behold my beloved speaketh to me: Arise, make haste, my love, my dove, my beautiful one, and come.
  • For winter is now past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers have appeared in our land, the time of pruning is come: the voice of the turtle is heard in our land: The fig tree hath put forth her green figs: the vines in flower yield their sweet smell. Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come" -Canticles of Canticles 2:10-13
  • "And Mary said: My soul doth magnify the Lord. And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. Because he hath regarded the humility of his handmaid; for behold from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. Because he that is mighty, hath done great things to me; and holy is his name. And his mercy is from generation unto generations, to them that fear him." -Luke 1:46-50
  • "Who is this that cometh up from the desert, flowing with delights, leaning upon her beloved?" -Canticles of Canticles 8:5
These Bible passages of Marys Assumption were taken from the timeless Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible.

If you are looking for a more modern language version of Marys Assumption, our recommendation would be the St. Ignatius Press Bible.

Marys Assumption Gives The Courage
To Ask For A Happy Death In The Hope
That You Will Be Washed Clean In
The Blood Of The Lamb, Jesus Christ

"These are they who...have washed their robes,
and have made them white in the blood of the Lamb."
-Apocalypse 7:14

Catholic Rosary Mysteries

The fruit of this mystery is the grace of a happy death for Mary had the happiest of deaths. She was surrounded by the Apostles. Jesus, God made man came to her and took her body and soul up with Him to heaven.

There will come a day when your soul will also depart from your body. At this time you will lose all earthly possessions and you will stand alone before God, your Creator.

Your closest friend and ally at this moment will be the Blessed Virgin Mary.

If during your life, you ask her to be your Mother, she will come to your side as any mother would.

She will offer to God the precious blood of her Son Jesus on your behalf and you will be washed clean in it and appear pleasing to God.

For Jesus did indeed shed His blood so that your sins would be pardoned.

The words of Cardinal Newman so beautifully illustrate the proper Catholic desire for a happy death...

"Let Thy Mother Mary come to me, and my angel whisper peace to me, and Thy glorious saints and my own dear patrons smile on me, that in and through them all I may die as I desire to live, in Thy Church, in Thy faith, and in Thy love."

Ask Mary for the grace of a happy death. So that she will pray to God the Father at that time saying the words: "Receive my child this day into Thy kingdom!"

Pray for the following graces:

  • For final perseverance
  • That the enemy will not prevail over you
  • That you will deserve to pass with the angels into life everlasting
  • That through Jesus' Divine Mercy your sins will be forgiven
Jesus will deliver you from the pains of hell and He will take you into paradise as He did the penitent thief.
