Blessing Herbs on the Feast of the Assumption: An Annual Tradition

Posted on August 15, 2021 by Andrea Forsberg

As you can see, the religious community has been gathering for years to bless their plants and flowers on August 15th. The tradition of blessing herbs on this day is important for many reasons, but one of the most significant reasons is that it reminds us about God's love and care for all of us on earth and in the afterlife. The Assumption also serves as a reminder of Mary's leadership and guidance in our spiritual lives. She was the first to live by faith - something we should strive to do every day. When you celebrate today with your loved ones or alone, take time to give thanks for all the blessings you've received from God so far in your life because he loves each person dearly who walks his path here on Earth.
