Here is the homily I gave for the Solemnity of the Assuption of Mary. In this homily I speak of the Victory we should experience today. However, with scandals in every headline of those who have betrayed their flock, it may feel as if we have been defeated. Our Victory is in Christ, not the human leaders in the Church. May we experience a purification through the intercession of the Blessed Mother and remember that we still need the Church for our salvation, that is, the Church as founded by Christ and not the one we see in the headlines.
