Act of Consecration to the Holy Ghost holy card
This extra large holy card features the classic image of Pentecost by the French painter Jean II Restout in 1732. On the back is the Act of Consecration and brief reflection on its benefits.
On Ascension Day, Jesus said to the apostles: "But you shall receive the power of the Holy Ghost coming upon you, and you shall be witnesses unto Me in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the uttermost part of the earth.' When He had said these things, while they looked on, He was raised up: and a cloud received Him out of their sight....they entered into the upper room...persevering with one mind in prayer with the women and Mary, the mother of Jesus...(Acts of the Apostles 1:8-14)
We, too, can prepare for the coming of Pentecost by praying the Act of Consecration to the Holy Ghost from the feast of the Ascension through Pentecost. When such a consecration is made with a great spirit of faith, its effect may be most profound and introduces us to the indwelling of the Holy Trinity within us. This Act of Consecration to the Holy Ghost can be renewed throughout the Pentecost season and like the Apostles, we can obtain many graces from it for our souls.
