The 5 week section of the lectionary in year B on the Eucharist is interrupted this year with the Solemnity of the Assumption of Our Lady falling on a Sunday. In Lumen Gentium, the Dogmatic Constitution on the church from Vatican II we read in paragraph 68: "Mary as the Mother of Jesus, glorified in body and soul in heaven, is the image and beginning of the Church as it is to be perfected is the world to come, so too does she shine forth on earth, until the day of the Lord shall come, as a sign of sure hope and solace to the people of God during its sojourn on earth." This is the cause of our celebrations on this great summer feast day! In this beautiful image from Santa Maria in Trastevere in Rome we see Mary welcomed by Jesus as the first to follow him into the glory of heaven.
