You're short-selling this, chuck.<quoted text>
On November 1, 1950, Pope Pius XII solemnly declared:
that the Immaculate Mother of God, the ever Virgin Mary, having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory
*So even though this doctrine is man-made, you believe it..correct? Just think...declared only a little over 60 years ago.
*So forgive me if I call it hog wash.
The Assumption of Mary was the subject of study and discussion since the fourth century, and the Church interprets scripture as referring to it.
Pius XII didn't just come up with it over coffee one morning.
