Fruits of the Holy Spirit
“Just so, every good tree bears good fruit, and a rotten tree bears bad fruit.
This passage in Matthew's Gospel helps us to understand the Fruits of the Holy Spirit, which are the observable behaviors of people who have allowed the grace of the Holy Spirit to be effective in them.
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.”
The Cathechism of the Catholic Church lists 12 fruits of the Holy Spirit versus the Holy Bible that only lists 9, you will only find 9 in the modern versions of the Holy Bibles. The Latin Vulgate states 12 fruit as follows: "But the fruit of the Spirit is, charity, joy, peace, patience, benignity, goodness, longanimity, mildness, faith, modesty, continency, chastity. Against such there is no law." [Gal. 5:22-23, Latin Vulgate]
A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a rotten tree bear good fruit.
Every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and
thrown into the fire. So by their fruits you will know them.”
Translated in the New American Bible as follows: "In contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law." [Gal 5:22-23]
The Vulgate is a Latin version of the Holy Bible, and largely the result of the labors of St. Jerome (Eusebius Sophronius Hieronymus), who was commissioned by Pope Damasus I in 382 A.D. to make a revision of the old Latin translations. By the 13th century this revision had come to be called the versio vulgata, that is, the "commonly used translation", and ultimately it became the definitive and officially promulgated [released] Latin version of the Holy Bible in the Catholic Church.
