Dogma of the Assumption of Our Lady

November 1, 1950 Pope Pius XII declared the dogma of the Assumption of Our Lady (6:00 min):
Declaramus et definimus divinitus revelatum dogma esse : Immaculatam Deiparam semper Virginem Mariam, expleto terrestris vitae cursu, fuisse corpore et anima ad caelestem gloriam assumptam.
We pronounce, declare, and define it to be a divinely revealed dogma: that the Immaculate Mother of God, the ever Virgin Mary, having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory.

Read the entire Apostolic Constitution Munificentissimus Deus.
