Novena for the Assumption of Mary - Day 1

O Mary, Mother of God, your death was entirely free from whatever might make death bitter: attachment to the world, remorse for sins, and the uncertainty of salvation.  Rather, your death was accompanied by three graces that made it precious and full of joy.  You died as you had lived: entirely detached from the things of this world, you died in the most perfect peace, and in the certainty of eternal glory.

O Mary, assumed into heaven, pray for us who have recourse to thee!
