Come Holy Spirit is
an inspirational guide to understanding, believing and living the Catholic faith.
an ideal gift for a Confirmation candidate to be kept for a lifetime with pictures to remember this special occasion.
a refresher course for parents and sponsors to reaffirm their faith while sharing their faith.
for the RICA candidate or fallen away Catholic.
also a wonderful guide for an interfaith couple.
It is probable that you have been a member of the Catholic Church for years and you know how difficult it is for you to conduct your life based on this faith in the permissive world we live in today. Sinful lifestyles are flaunted before us everyday and we are expected to go along silently without a word of disagreement. If we do offer words of objection we may be ridiculed, harassed and embarrassed and told we are old-fashioned and not up-to-date with the times.
Now is the time to tell the person seeking Confirmation that not everything can be tolerated without violating the promises made with God at confirmation. This is the most excellent time to reinforce the fact that a particular lifestyle goes along with being confirmed in the Catholic Church. It is one in which God's laws and those of His Church are standard for living one's entire life. It is the standard outside of ourselves that keeps us on the path to holiness and the one in which others have a right to expect us to live, particularly a married partner.

“I would recommend this title to anyone who wants a ‘refresher course’ in some of the basics of our Catholic Faith.I like the way the book is broken down – Prayers, the Ten Commandments, the Sacraments – as it helps when I have had to re-read a passage. The chapters make it easy to find the segment I need.I particularly like the many biblical references throughout the pages, as I feel they help not only in our understanding of the faith, but in our ability to defend our faith.”
“I feel that this book is beneficial to people, who like me, did not receive the most in depth teaching of our faith.”
“It is definitely a book that inspires discussion, and reinforces and supplements whatever other religious program you are using.”

“No Catholic Home should be without the book Come Holy Spirit. This book is an awesome resource tool to teach the Catholic faith. This is the book I have been searching for to educate my children about the Church. Organized beautifully to teach prayers, the commandments, and the Precepts, with biblical references printed throughout, and with the most important lessons printed in bold, this is the book your child needs before Confirmation. Come Holy Spirit will help your child to understand the enormous responsibility of a Confirmed Catholic, and will give them a deep understanding of the truth within our Church. An indispensable tool for any home, Church or school library.

Reader Reviews for "Come Holy Spirit - A Guide To Confirming Faith In The Roman Catholic Church"
|Reviewed by Victoria Murray
|An inspirational guide to religion nicely put together by this talented author!
|As a strong atheist and having debated this with agnostics many times I could not disagree more.
First of all, nobody can agree even on the definition of god.
In fact, gods do exist. Some are made of stone, some of crystal some of granite. Is that what you mean by gods? Well those gods can exist and do exist but they are useless.
As for the christian/Jewish/islamic god, it does not exist simply because that god is a logical impossibility.
Now, untill you define what kind of god can or cannot exist or is unknowable from a definition point of view, you are arguing an unintelligeable argument.
Let me make this simple. Nothing within existence can exist under the label "god" and nothing outside existence can exist as it is circular logic.
Therefore, all that exists is self sustaining. A self sustaining being within existence cannot be both in existence and the source of existence. It is either outside existence, which means in the mind of people alone, or within existence, in which case it is not a god but a product or byproduct of existence. In either case, god, as has been proposed by manking, IS a logical impossibility.
