PODCAST | With Mary, Praying as a Single Family
[ View Transcript ]
In this podcast, Msgr. Fred Dolan brings our attention to the days between the Ascension and Pentecost where we join Mary, the holy women, and the Apostles in the Upper Room as they eagerly await the coming of the Holy Spirit.
As he explains, “Thinking of those in the Upper Room, there was nothing static about their daily life during those days between Easter and the Ascension. After all, they had spent three long years being constantly nourished by the Master. And so, during that time in the Upper Room, each of them had to dig deep into their interior life in order to grapple with their new situation, in order to seek strength.”
As we continue to contemplate the events surrounding Christ’s death and Resurrection, Msgr. Dolan reminds us that Christ is not merely a distant figure of the past but that he is truly alive and present among us! So we also can find strength today in the same charisms that strengthened the Apostles during this pivotal time: contemplation, the Eucharist, and Our Lady’s maternal love.
