Today, the feast of Our Lady Refuge of Sinners, gives us the opportunity of keeping a triduum of devotion before the glorious feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin into Heaven. Tradition relates that Our Lady, in imitation of her Divine Son, was raised body and soul into Heaven on the third day after Her death. Therefore, in remembrance of this we have erected a catafalque in the chapel.
The community gathers about the bier as did the apostles.
