"THOU, IN TOIL, ART COMFORT SWEET;
PLEASANT COOLNESS IN THE HEAT;
SOLACE IN THE MIDST OF WOE."
The FIFTH Gift of the Spirit, FORTITUDE,
strengthens the soul against natural fear
to the very end,
the performance of duty.
FORTITUDE imparts to the will an impulse and energy
which move it to undertake,
the most arduous tasks,
to face dangers,
to trample under foot human respect,
and to endure,
the slow martyrdom of even lifelong tribulation.
Come, O Blessed Spirit of FORTITUDE,
uphold my soul in time of trouble and adversity,
sustain my efforts after holiness,
strengthen my weakness,
give me courage against ALL the assaults of my enemies,
that I may NEVER be overcome and separated from Thee,
my GOD and greatest Good.
