Where in the Bible does it say that Mary was assumed into heaven?

Full Question

Where does it say that Mary was assumed into heaven? I have read in the Bible about Enoch and Elijah, but where does it say God called Mary to heaven?

Answer
If you are looking for direct scriptural proof of this dogma, you will not find any. Mary’s Assumption was not explicitly recorded in Scripture. However, Pope Pius XII formally defined the dogma of the Assumption in his apostolic constitution Munificentissimus Deuson November 1, 1950: “The Immaculate Mother of God, the ever Virgin Mary, having completed the course of her earthly life, was assumed body and soul into heavenly glory” (MD 44).
