"The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law" Galatians 5:22-23.
In Let Go of Anger and Stress , Catholic author and self-proclaimed expert worrier Gary Zimak reminds us that the Holy Spirit is gifted to us by God in Baptism and strengthened in Confirmation. Because of that precious gift, we have everything we need to produce Christ-like fruit in our lives. And it's by those fruits that we will be judged at the end of our lives. "No good fruit = no heaven," Zimak writes.

- step-by-step guidance for growing each of the nine fruits of the Spirit in your own life;
- "Remember," "Reflect," and "Respond" prompts that will help you to develop new habits and attitudes; and
- prayers to help you take your next steps under the Holy Spirit's guidance.
