New Videos will be released on Ascension Presents weekly! Share your journey with others in the comments below!

In this introductory video, you will meet the hosts, Fr. Mark Toups, Sr. Miriam James Heidland, and Fr. Josh Johnson as they share their own encounters with Mary and the effect she has had on their lives.

This video will put you in the frame of mind to see Advent through Mary’s eyes as you wait with her for the birth of her son, Jesus.

This free series has 4 videos (plus one introductory video), one for each week of Advent. These videos are all available now at, but will also be released one by one on YouTube as Advent unfolds.

To have these videos delivered straight to your inbox, go to and sign up for the email list.

To go even deeper into the Advent season, Fr. Toups has put together The Rejoice! Advent Meditations with Mary Journal (only $10 plus shipping).

The Journal will follow along with the videos and offers an opportunity for you to encounter Mary in the quiet of your heart.

Each day, in a few short pages, Fr. Toups provides you with aids to help guide your prayer:

  1. A word – Focus on a single word each day to draw out the details, the specifics of who Our Lady is.
  2. A reflection – Learn more about Mary, the culture in which she was raised, and the world in which she lived.
  3. A Psalm – Each day, you’re given a Psalm to pray (just as Mary herself would have prayed) to help you enter into prayer.
  4. A reading – In reading Scripture, you find the Word of God, bringing you closer to Mary, who carried the Word in her body.
  5. A prompt – Space is provided each day to journal. Record how the Lord is speaking to you this Advent.
