This beautiful stained glass image of the Virgin Mary was created by Ukrainian artist Petro Kholodny in 1924.On Tuesday, August 15, Catholics and many other Christians celebrate the feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This significant feast day recalls the spiritual and physical departure of the mother of Jesus Christ from the earth, when both her soul and her body were taken into the presence of God. Venerable Pope Pius XII confirmed this belief about the Virgin Mary as the perennial teaching of the Church when he defined it formally as a dogma of Catholic faith in 1950, invoking papal infallibility to proclaim:

The four Gospels in the New Testament were written by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.Gospel of Matthew 17: Jesus took with him Peter and James and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain apart. And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his garments became white as light. And behold, there appeared to them Moses and Elijah, talking with him.

This statue of Our Lady of Fatima, featuring the Immaculate Heart of Mary, is owned by the World Apostolate of Fatima in Saint Louis, Missouri.The Missionaries of the Holy Family are honored to offer the First Saturday Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary at Saint Wenceslaus Church -- 3014 Oregon Avenue, Saint Louis, Missouri 63118 -- on Saturday, August 5, 2017, from 2:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

The artwork of God the Father is an original illustration by artist Jason Koltuniak for a scriptural counting book for children, Counting on Faith.12 No one can question what you have done or challenge your judgment. 13 All things are under your care, and there is no other god to whom you must justify your decisions. 14 No king or ruler on earth can accuse you of punishing those people unfairly. 15 You are righteous, and you rule everything righteously.

God created the world in this order: day and night, sky, earth, sun and moon and stars, fish and birds, and animals and humans.18 I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory about to be revealed to us. 19 For all creation awaits with eager expectation for the revelation of the children of God.

When Jesus rose from the dead, his wounds remained as marks of salvation for all believers.There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do: by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and to deal with sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, so that the just requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

In this captivating image, by artist Jason Koltuniak, Thomas the Apostle places his hand in the pierced side of the Resurrected Christ.24 But Thomas (who was called the Twin), one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands, and put my finger in the mark of the nails and my hand in his side, I will not believe.”

The image of Jesus Christ offering His heart to the world is an expression of sacrificial love.25 At that time Jesus said, "I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent and have revealed them to little ones; 26 yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. 27 All things have been handed over to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him."

The Sacred Heart of Jesus is a Eucharistic Heart because His Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity becomes the food of eternal salvation.51 "I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats of this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh." 52 The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?" 53 So Jesus said to them, "Very truly, I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you."

The Most Holy Trinity is the three Divine Persons of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit as one Sovereign God.11 Finally, brothers and sisters, farewell. Put things in order, listen to my appeal, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you. 12 Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the saints greet you.
