Is there a Church in the Holy Land that Commemorates the Assumption of Virgin Mary?

Is there a church commemorating the Assumption of the Virgin Mary in the Holy Land? Yes, indeed! But first, before we address this question. Let us define the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which is also called “the Falling Asleep of the Blessed Virgin Mary”, falls on the 15th of August every year. This feast celebrates the end of Virgin Mary's earthly life, and her bodily and spiritual ascension into heaven. The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven is a required belief and a defined doctrine of the Catholic Church.

Dormition Abbey, located in the Holy Land, is a church dedicated to the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Dormition Abbey, commonly known as the Basilica of the Assumption, is located in Jerusalem. It is where the Blessed Virgin Mary was carried to Heaven, both physically and spiritually. The Dormition Abbey is fairly near to the Upper Room.

Some individuals ask if this doctrine has any biblical support. There are a few biblical verses that relate to the Assumption, although they aren't particularly specific. Although the assumption is not expressly mentioned in the Bible, Mary's perfect union with Jesus’s destiny is strongly emphasized.

We should apply this message to our daily lives as Christians. This feast tells us that earth is only a test that we must pass through in order to enter paradise. Even if our everyday life troubles occasionally get the best of us, we must remember that if we trust in God and his teachings, as well as the Blessed Mary who watches over us from heaven, we shall be able to overcome our troubles and worries, and live a happy and fulfilling life, and hopefully be welcomed into heavenly bliss.
