Time between Ascension and Pentecost
I like to imagine how the Apostles felt when Jesus left them. They knew that the Holy Spirit was to come as Jesus had told them he would send them an advocate. They may have made the first retreat, waiting and praying together during these days. I am sure they spent time going over what Jesus had said to them while he was with them. They must also have wondered how they were to go out to the whole world and baptize in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They were still fearful and I suspect they felt lost without Jesus and turned to Mary for comfort.
