Beth and Kristofer Cowles discuss the Fruits of the Spirit as St. Paul lists in Galatians 5:22-23. Each video is 3 – 5 minutes long, and helpful for adults, parents, and kids to begin discussing the Fruits in their own lives – how to recognize them, how to practice them, and how to get better at them.

Fruit of the Spirit Children’s Song by Bob Baxter
The Lourdes Hymn (Immaculate Mary) by uCatholic
Chastity is a difficult, long term matter; one must wait patiently for it to bear fruit, for the happiness of loving kindness which it must bring.
Pope John Paul II
Purpose of the Fruits of the Spirit Videos
Our purpose is to give the older family members the knowledge and tools to pass along the information to their younger members in a way that engages them. Teaching young children about the Holy Spirit is important and the relationship a child develops with the Holy Spirit can bear amazing fruit in their lives. We want to give you brief insights into the Fruits, and provide accompanying podcast-length discussions with each. To that end, each video is accompanied with links to an episode of On the Road to Perfection, Beth and Kristofer’s weekly podcast, where in each of the specific episodes they dive deeper into that particular fruit.

Prayer to the Holy Spirit
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful, and kindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your Spirit, and they shall be created. And you shall renew the face of the earth.
One of the seven social teachings of the Catholic Church, caring for our earthly home is intimately connected to every part of our life.
After quoting an 80s video game and Monty Python, Beth and Kristofer dive into this topic with Kristofer making sure everyone knows he is not a tree hugger.
Then they go on identifying birds and trees as they walk by. Well, the topic is what the topic is – and they do answer the question we all have about that environment issue.
