Virtues, Gifts, Fruits: Target 07?

The Seven Virtues
Theological Virtues: Faith, Hope, Love
Cardinal Virtues: Prudence, Justice, Temperance, Fortitude

Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit
Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Strength, Knowledge, Piety, Fear of the Lord

Fruits of the Holy Spirit
Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Generosity, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-control
(Galatians 5:22)

It might seem like basic stuff, but it was hard for me to find all of it in one place, which must be why I jotted the above on a single crispy page of my 2006 pocket calender.

Athos and Aramis could probably do loads better commentary on these, so I won't even try.

Elemental does NOT mean elementary, Porthos. If for no other reason, all Catholics should recall what you lift up here simply, clearly and indelibly. Thank you for doing so.

BTW, the sidebar categories are concise and helpful, Aramis. Bravo.
