The Assumption of Mary

St. John Damascene and St. Germanus of Constantinople are two ancient writers who focused on Mary's Assumption. Here is a text from St. Germanus:

"Just as a child seeks and desires its mother's presence and a mother delights in her child's company, it was fitting that you, whose motherly love for your Son and God leaves no room for doubt, should return to him. And was it not right, in any case, that this God who had a truly filial love for you, should take you into his company?"
