Catechism of the Catholic Church
<sup class="versenum">1830</sup> The moral life of Christians is sustained by the gifts of the Holy Spirit. These are permanent dispositions which make man docile in following the promptings of the Holy Spirit.
<sup class="versenum">1831</sup> The seven gifts of the Holy Spirit are wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord. They belong in their fullness to Christ, Son of David.109 <ref>Cf. Isa 11:1-2.</ref> They complete and perfect the virtues of those who receive them. They make the faithful docile in readily obeying divine inspirations.::Let your good spirit lead me on a level path.110<ref>Ps 143:10.</ref>::For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God . . . If children, then heirs, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ.111 <ref>Rom 8:14,17.</ref>
<sup class="versenum">1832</sup> The fruits of the Spirit are perfections that the Holy Spirit forms in us as the first fruits of eternal glory. The tradition of the Church lists twelve of them: "charity, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, generosity, gentleness, faithfulness, modesty, self-control, chastity."112<ref>Gal 5:22-23 (Vulg.).</ref>
