“Mary is assumed because of spiritual physics and her literal holiness…
With Mary, we see that this promise is fulfilled. She lived free from the reign of the serpent. She experienced the weight of human sin (temptation) but she never gave into temptation. Her trust in the Father was so pure and sure that she lived as if the serpent’s head had already been crushed.
Science can aid us in viewing the sanctity of the Blessed Mother. Years ago, scientists discovered that fetal cells remain in the mother even after their child is born. Countless mothers have described the feeling that “my children still feel like they are a part of me” even long after they are born into the world. The fetal cells enter the woman’s body through the placenta and then they can morph into different tissue and live inside of the mother.
Applied to Mary, we see that she would have literally had the Body of Christ grafted to her body. Christ dwelled within her, even after that first Christmas morning. She shows humanity what can happen when we allow Jesus to act on us and be enlivened by his conquering of sin and death.”
