4: Think of Fortitude like the strong driving wind.
Fortitude means courage, but the Holy Spirit does not simply make us brave; he gives us the courage that comes from trusting in God’s strength.
In today’s first reading, the coming of the Holy Spirit is described this way: “Suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind, and it filled the entire house.”
Fortitude is a strong driving wind for your soul; a wind at your back that gives you confidence to face the end of your race, knowing that your efforts are being pushed along by an unseen power.
