“Our hero for today is Mary,” said Bishop John Noonan to students and faculty from three local Orlando schools, Bishop Moore Catholic High School, St. Charles Borromeo and Morning Star School. The Mass celebrated the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary.
“We honor her for her role” as Mother of God noted Bishop Noonan. “Who do we want to imitate?” he asked, explaining that we get to heaven by imitating those who lived as Christ. The bishop spoke of Mary’s willingness to be used by God and encouraged everyone, “Allow God to inspire us to bring peace, hope and love into our world.”
