In France, the Catholic Assumption Day, or Assomption in France, is the day in Roman Catholic tradition when Mary, mother of Jesus Christ, was taken bodily up into heaven. It is celebrated on August 15th each year and is a Holy Day of Obligation for Catholics in France. It is also a public holiday with banks and most businesses closed.
From France, a reader has sent this in. The Marian Procession, as it is known, was surrounded by the army, not police. Many emails have come in about this and it is not being reported in mainstream media. Many are being left with the feeling that a once Catholic country has been reduced to the point that Catholics now require military protection to worship.
This is indeed becoming very disturbing and the sentiment is rising in France where we may indeed see a revolution in the making.
