COLORADO SPRINGS. John Tosto was a World War II veteran, father of eight children, a business owner, and an accomplished artist. He had also designed and crafted numerous works of art for his parish, Our Lady of the Pines, and other local churches. But when he realized that he would not live to see his final project through to completion, it was devastating.

LIMON. The Union Pacific Railroad still thunders past the small town of Limon, 72 miles east of Colorado Springs. Years ago, frequent stops of passenger trains encouraged growth and the founding of the place, but now it’s the highway that brings visitors. Making their way along Interstate 70, travelers come in for a landing to be served by a bright new cluster of gas stations, gift shops, and several chain hotels. Locals enjoy good work here, and many will attend Mass today at Our Lady of Victory, a handsome red brick church founded in 1925. Today — Dec. 15, 2019 — is a special day, and people and luminaries stream in from all over.

COLORADO SPRINGS. When Rick Lentz started donating funds to St. Paul Street Evangelization (SPSE) he didn’t plan to become quite so involved as he is now. What began as simply providing financial support quickly turned into taking some of their online evangelization courses, which soon led him to find out what it would take to become a team leader for Colorado Springs.

COLORADO SPRINGS. The Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which takes place on Aug. 15, is a holy day of obligation this year. 

Pope Pius XII defined the Assumption as a dogma on Nov. 1, 1950, proclaiming that the belief that the Blessed Virgin Mary was taken up body and soul into heaven at the end of her earthly life forms part of the deposit of faith received from the apostles. 

The pope’s proclamation did not include details regarding the manner, time or place in which the assumption occurred.

When the solemnity falls on a Saturday or Monday, the precept to attend Mass is abrogated, according to a 1991 decree by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
