This year, the Solemnity of the Assumption falls on Sunday. Already, many people have been calling my office to ask whether or not they should sing Marian hymns. I think the concern this year is because it falls on Sunday. I wish they’d just look at the Scripture and other Mass texts when planning a liturgy. I personally have strong reservation about singing some Marian hymns at Eucharist because they seem more devotional (or maybe I just don’t like them!). This thread could go many directions so I’ll just ask for your reflections/thoughts.
