During his ministry, Jesus taught by the grace of the Holy Spirit. He taught by example, and the ultimate moral of his teachings was love. As our 8th graders journey toward full initiation in our beautiful Catholic faith culminating in the Sacrament of Confirmation, they will learn that in unity with the Holy Spirit the indelible mark of his teachings manifest in the virtues of faith, hope and love and in gifts like wisdom, understanding, fortitude, knowledge and piety. A life where God reigns is a life generous in the fruits of the Holy Spirit: charity, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, generosity, gentleness, faithfulness, modesty, self-control and chastity. These fruits guard against fear, anxiety, pride, anger, depression, confusion… A life of love is a life lived in the Spirit of the Father. This is what the Father wants for us.
