The Feast of the Assumption marks the first Sunday in the month of Lent. It is also known as the Immaculate Conception. On this day, Mary, mother of God and Virgin Mary became immaculately pregnant after her husband’s marriage to Mary Magdalene, where the Virgin had given birth to Jesus the Christ. Since that time, this feast has been celebrated on this day by Catholics all over the world on their feast days.
In fact, according to Catholic tradition, Mary had remained hidden from her husband until the night before his wedding to hide from him the conception of her son Jesus. She let her daughters go to the garden where the fruits of all the trees had been plucked that year.
While she was alone, a stone was rolled from the hillside and it has been interpreted as the stone that was thrown at Jesus by one of his disciples. When Mary and the women returned home, they announced to the father of the bride that they had brought a stone with them.
