What are the fruits of our actions? They are called the fruits of the Holy Spirit. They are listed as charity, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, generosity, gentleness, faithfulness, modesty, self-control, chastity. The tradition of the Church lists twelve of them.
Across the steppingstones of Self-control,
On the banks of the God-intoxicated river,
Where flow the waves of compassion dance,
Strip yourself naked,
And plunge deep into the purifying current!
Only then will the Soul be cleansed
Of the effects of the manifest world.
