What? No Feast of the Assumption?

Why is this feast day conspicuously MISSING from Protestant calendars? It is one of the OLDEST feast days in the Church and is celebrated in both Eastern and Western traditions. The ONLY Christian groups, by and large, which do NOT celebrate this feast are those which formed during or after the 16th century. Sort of indicative that a "new gospel" was preached to those who do not observe this feast day!

  1. Hi!
    I'm a Protestant who happens to have a great deal of respect for the Mother of God, and I agree that it's shameful what the Protestant church has done to Mary. I spoke about this in a little more detail at my own blog,
    the title of the specific blog post is "The Crazy Cat Aunt Who is only Brought Out At Christmas, or Why Have the Protestants Shut Mary Away?"
    I find it very aggravating and repellent what the Protestant church has done. While I have to be honest, I'm not sure I believe in the Assumption, I do pray the rosary almost every day and I respect and honor her as the Theotokos, the Mother of God.
