Hey bro or girl or whatever. Ive been studying it for like 5 years.
Fortis Fort- is with a strong S rather then like the word "is" more like the way s is pronounced in "silk"
Spiritus spirry - Tuus long deep vowels not like the word "us"
christus - chris- tuus

In Latin words of two syllables, the stress is on the first syllable. The stress is on the first syllable in "spiritus" too.
