Time for yet another Mary post. I guess this whole May thing is inspiring. Anyway, I was asked recently–by a Catholic–why Mary was assumed into Heaven so early rather than having to wait till Judgement Day. And the answer I gave had never really occurred to me before then, but at that moment it did indeed hit me with quite a bit of force.
The resurrection of our bodies happens on the Last Day. Now then, if the day of judgement is going to reveal everyone’s sins and then have everyone be judged accordingly, and Mary is, as the Church teaches, sinless, then the day of judgement would not even need to apply to her. Therefore, there would be absolutely no reason why she couldn’t have her body as soon as she went to Heaven.
God bless you, and may His mother pray for you during this, her month,
