Consecration of the flowers on Assumption Day

On August 15th Innichen celebrates Assumption Day. This day is also the Italian holiday “Ferragosto” (from the Latin holiday of Augustus). 

Assumption Day, or also called “A Cheer for our Women Day”, is a solemnity in honour of Virgin Mary in the Catholic Church. 

On this holiday herbs and flowers are traditionally consecrated during the service in Hochpustertal. The tradition of the consecration of herbs goes back to the time pre-Christian times. The people thanked God for giving them the herbs in the forests, on the meadows and fields, a remedy for illnesses.
