Journey with Mary from The Ascension to Pentecost: A guide to praying with Mary for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit

For over a century it has been a tradition within in the Catholic Church to pray for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the days between the Ascension and Pentecost.

In the book of Acts, once the apostles see Jesus ascend into heaven, they gather in continuous prayer with Mary the mother of Jesus. Who better than Mary to accompany us as we too pray for a new Pentecost.

In recent years many Christian denominations throughout the world have also been praying for this intention through a prayer initiative called 'Thy Kingdom Come'. By joining this initiative we are therefore renewing our desire for the Kingdom of God to be made real in the lives of those we know and love through the power of the Holy Spirit.

This booklet has been written for those who have a devotion to Our Lady to pray ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ as we journey with Mary through the decade of the rosary from the Ascension to Pentecost. It is merely a guide, like signs along the road, to provide you with themes, intentions and a structure of prayer for each day.Whether you use only part of the booklet or extend your prayers to a decade or rosary each day, it is our hope that the power of the Holy Spirit moves in the lives of those for whom you make these prayers.
