The* ex cathedra* pronouncement of our Lady’s bodily Assumption into the glories of Heaven left it ambiguous as to whether or not Mary had died before her Assumption. It just says that she “finished the course of her earthly life…” If she did die and then afterwards ascended, this means she would have also ressurected, much like her Divine Son.
She was concieved Immaculately-- doesn’t that mean that she wouldn’t suffer the terrible effects of sin, death; even though she had not yet been glorified? So she, during her life, was neither in a sinful state or a glorified state during the course of her life. Is this correct? I know she wasn’t walking around in a glorified state.
Since Jesus did expirience death, He was neither ever in a sinful state, and, it was only after His death and then his ressurection that he was in a glorified state. This means, that during the course of both Jesus and Mary’s earthly lives, that, they were in a state that was neither sinful nor glorified (yet) in which they were sinless but were somehow succeptible the the mortal aspects of original sin, even though they were completely without sin.
How is this explained, and is there a term for this not-sinful-yet-not-glorified state?
