  • Use the following definitions to get ideas of what to write:

Hope: the confidence that God will always be with us, make us happy now and forever, and help us to live so that we will be with him forever

Faith: a gift of God that helps us to believe in him. We profess our faith in the creed, celebrate it in the sacraments, live by it through our good conduct of loving God and our neighbor, and express it in prayer.
