Facing Violence is a weekly reality for pro lifers in Canada

Abortion activists frequently lie and claim that pro-lifers pose a risk to abortion workers. The reality on the ground is that pro-lifers, often young women, are attacked with shocking regularity. Jonathon Van Maren breaks it down.

The Spirit Song - Katy Feeney




by Katy Feeney

The reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation 
Is necessary for the completion of Baptismal Grace 
for by the Sacrament of Confirmation 
the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church 
and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit, 
hence they are as true witnesses of Christ 
more strictly obliged to spread and 
defend the faith by word and deed.

Refrain

Come Holy Spirit take hold of my life,
Sign me with your Holy love.
Give me your gifts, Confirm me in faith, 
Spirit Come

1... Spirit of Wisdom enlighten my mind
Make me see things as they are
Spirit of Wisdom enlighten my words,
Let my mouth speak words of truth.

2.  Spirit of Counsel Please show me the way
Guide me in paths that are true and straight
Allow me to lead all to know their life's work
Work in me wonders of love

3. Spirit of knowledge lead me to light
Open my eyes to your love.
Believe in me, strengthen me, deepen my faith
Let me reflect you to all.

4. Spirit of Piety strengthen my soul
Lift up my thoughts to the Lord
Marveling at your mercy so great
Fill me with Your love






Wisdom: helps us judge what is important, meaningful, purposeful, etc.

Understanding:
to know something is different from truly understanding it. I can know a lot of facts about someone, but that is different from truly understanding that person.

Counsel:
helps us differentiate between right and wrong.

Fortitude: courage and endurance.

Knowledge:
helps us to know God.

Piety:
proper reverence for God, helps us obey God out of love.

Fear of the Lord: proper disdain for sin and awe of God’s goodness and love.
