    As the Immaculate Conception is the foundation of the mysteries, so is the Assumption their crown. For the entire object and end of cosmic evolution is precisely this triumph and apotheosis of the soul. In the mystery presented by this dogma, we behold the consummation of the whole scheme of creation--the perpetuation and glorification of the individual human ego. The grave--the material and astral consciousness--cannot retain the immaculate Mother of God. She rises into thee heavens; she assumes divinity. In her own proper person she is taken up into the King's chamber. From end to end the mystery of the soul's evolution--the history, that is, of humanity and of the cosmic drama--is contained and enacted in the cultus of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The acts and the glories of Mary are the one supreme subject of the holy mysteries.

    The assumption

    The Orthodox church refers to it as the Dormition of Mary. Perhaps you are thinking of the Immaculate Conception, which concerns the conception of Mary (not Jesus) exempt from the effects of Original Sin. That feast is celebrated on December 8 (nine months before the Birthday of Mary).

    My assumption is that you are speaking of the Assumption.

    The only C word I can think of is the Holy Conception.

    That is called the Assumption because she was assumed into HEaven by God... body and soul... alot of times i get confused between this and the Ascencion.... the day where Jesus took himself into Heaven....they soudn so similar!!!!
