    The Seven Contrary Virtues:
    humility, kindness, abstinence, chastity, patience, liberality, diligence

    The Contrary Virtues were derived from the Psychomachia (“Battle for the Soul”), an epic poem written by Prudentius (c. 410). Practicing these virtues is alledged to protect one against temptation toward the Seven Deadly Sins: humility against pride, kindness against envy, abstinence against gluttony, chastity against lust, patience against anger, liberality against greed, and diligence against sloth.

    The Seven Heavenly Virtues:
    faith, hope, charity, fortitude, justice, temperance, prudence

    The Seven Corporal Works of Mercy

    Continuing the numerological mysticism of Seven, the Christian Church assembled a list of seven good works that was included in medieval catechisms. They are: feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, give shelter to strangers, clothe the naked, visit the sick, minister to prisoners, and bury the dead.

    The Seven Corporal Works of Mercy are:

    1. Feed the hungry
    2. Give drink to the thirsty
    3. Welcome the stranger
    4. Clothe the naked
    5. Visit the sick
    6. Visit the prisoner
    7. Bury the dead.

    The Spiritual Works of Mercy were:

    1. To teach the ignorant
    2. To counsel the needy
    3. To chastise the sinful
    4. To comfort the sorrowful
    5. To forgive enemies
    6. To suffer tribulation
    7. To pray for all fervently
