Baptism

In our baptism, we are re-created as the children of God and brought into the Life of God through Jesus Christ.  In baptism, we receive the Holy Spirit who makes a dwelling within us, bearing the gifts of Faith, Hope, and Love.  

Later, in confirmation, these gifts with the fire or intensity of the Spirit, will be made firm, bringing these gifts of Faith, Hope, and Love, to maturation as they begin to manifest themselves in wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, Piety (Reverence), and Fear of the Lord (Wonder and Awe).
