Today In Fact, 1 November

Today in 1950, one of the more curious beliefs in Christendom was dogmatically declared by Pope Pius XII. Invoking the idea of Papal infallibility, Pius XII announced that Mary, the mother of Jesus was assumed body and soul into heaven.

This now makes three people at least who live bodily in heaven (Elijah, Jesus and Mary). I would love to know what the plumbing arrangements are.
