The Catholic Church has several symbols associated with the Holy Spirit, including a dove[1][2], fire[2], oil[4], wind[2], and water[4]. Other symbols include nine flames, nine lamps, a nine-pointed crown, or a nine-branched candelabra[3]. These symbols represent the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit: “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control”[3]. The most common symbol of the Catholic faith is the crucifix – a cross with the figure of the body of Jesus Christ attached to it[5].
