    Chapter three introduces the reader to representatives of the nouvelle théologie and their contribution to the dogma of the Assumption. This longest chapter of the book presents us with the assessments of Karl Rahner, SJ, Hans Urs von Balthasar, Louis Bouyer, and Joseph Ratzinger. With his “Interpretation of the Dogma of the Assumption.   The Assumption of Mary is also known as the Falling Asleep of the Blessed Virgin Mary or the Dormition of Mary. It is a Holy Day of Obligation (when it is not celebrated on a Monday) and is celebrated annually on August Every year, Christians celebrate when Our Blessed Mother was taken up into Heaven body and soul at the end of her life.

      The definition and meaning of the Assumption of Mary is necessarily connected to the fourfold dogma of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Roman Catholic catechism. Having established the assertion of the doctrine of the Assumption of Mary we now move to what may be called, “the great epistemological question.”.   On November 1, , Pius XII defined the dogma of the Assumption. Thus he solemnly proclaimed that the belief whereby the Blessed Virgin Mary, at the close of her earthly life, was taken up, body.

    Hence the necessity of an orthodox dogma, a dogma that would really “connect” us with God’s reality and therefore become like a channel for his Grace. In this light then, let us consider the dogma of the Assumption and therefore its practical aspect in order to benefit from it. The Dogma of the Assumption is intricately related to Mary’s special privilege of being completely without sin, her Immaculate Conception. When Jesus Christ died on the Cross, rose from the dead, and ascended into Heaven, He opened the way to Heaven.

I've always wondered why, say, the Assumption became a dogma of the church inafter floating around as an idea for centuries. I assume there are politics, goals, intentions, just plain papal preferences that went into these four concept's status as dogma.

The Dogma of the Assumption of Mary. In the Eastern Church, the dormition ("falling asleep") of Mary began to be commemorated in the 6th century.
