Today, Catholics are celebrating the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, when at the end of her life she was assumed body and soul into Heaven.
Which makes it the perfect time to share this fun discussion I had with Julian Ahlquist, founding faculty member of Chesterton Academy, about Mary Poppins and the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Julian makes a strong case that Mary Poppins represents the Mother of God, and one of his reasons is because both Marys experience an assumption (see the end of the Mary Poppins film.)
Julian and I walked through the entire Mary Poppins narrative, noting other Catholic connections, including Bert as St. Joseph and “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” as an unavoidably religious invocation.
Here are some of the connections we discuss:

Curious it seems this young lady feels that Abortion has been an economic growth…..Let’s pray that as Catholic’s we stand up to this. FCMG is asking for your prayers against this mess.
Has abortion made America more prosperous? Chelsea Clinton seems to think so.
The former first daughter spoke recently at a “Rise up for Roe” event in New York City, one of a series of meetings organized by NARAL and Planned Parenthood to oppose the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. In the course of her remarks, she suggested that one way to strengthen support for keeping abortion legal and readily available is to emphasize what a boon Roe v. Wade has been for the US economy.
