Rosary
Question from Joanne on 8/27/2014:

I love to pray the rosary, but when I get to the decade of the Assumption I find it hard to picture anything as a visual image to meditate on, as I have no idea how it "looked" in reality. I would be grateful for any tips.

Answer by Catholic Answers on 8/27/2014:

Joanne--

Most artistic renditions of the Assumption show the Blessed Mother being lifted into the sky. But the early Christian stories of the Assumption merely state that the apostles found her tomb empty (just as they had found her Son's). Either image might be helpful.
