Mary remains with the Apostles, praying fervently for the Comforter to appear. The 11 faithful Apostles, waiting in expectation, are rewarded with the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.

All timidity is driven away as the Spirit endows them with the fearless love of Truth. After a novena of days, the Holy Spirit comes down upon those fearfully gathered together in the upper room.
