With Mary in the Cenacle

To attract the Holy Spirit, let us imitate the Apostles and disciples of Jesus and withdraw into the Cenacle with Mary. The Cenacle signifies a life of recollection, prayers, holy desires. It informs us that we ought to live united to the Mother of our Saviour in a constant heart-to-heart, to think, love and act like Her, to mingle our supplications with Hers and touch the Heart of God.

Pentecost

Our Lord laid the foundations of His Church during His public life, and after His Resurrection He gave it the powers necessary for its mission. It was by the Holy Ghost that the Apostles were to be trained and endued with strength from on High. At Pentecost we celebrate the first manifestation of the Holy Ghost among our Lord’s disciples and the foundation of the Church itself.
