What are the fruits of the Holy Spirit

I was off Sunday and Monday, and upon returning to work on Tuesday morning I see this on my desk..... 

One of my parishioners and a dear friend dropped it off. It took a little detective work to figure out who it was.

Tonight he stopped by to chat and discuss the powers of the fruits of the Holy Spirit and how much you can change peoples lives. As we near the feast of Pentecost these prophetic words I'm much more important today the neighbor ever been. For they are much more than words they are a tool, a gift to all of us. These fruits are giveen to us to be perfect as Christ is called us to be.

And now I'm taking a few minutes to do evening prayer, and this is tonight's reading

Galatians 5:16, 22-23a, 25

Live in accord with the spirit and you will not yield to the cravings of the flesh. The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patient endurance, kindness, generosity, faith, mildness and chastity. Since we live by the spirit, let us follow the spirit’s lead.

Let us call upon the Holy Spirit to guide us to fill us with the fruits of Charity, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, generosity, gentleness, faithfulness, modesty, self-Control, and chastity.
