From the Internet:
In the Catholic catechism, the Seven Catholic Virtues refers to the union of two sets of virtues.

The four Cardinal virtues, from ancient Greek philosophy, are Prudence, Justice, Temperance (or Restraint), and Courage (or Fortitude).

The three Theological virtues, from the letters of St. Paul of Tarsus, are Faith, Hope, and Charity (or Love). These were adopted by the Church Fathers as the Seven Virtues

They sound good to me. The toughest one to follow is, of course, LOVE.
Love thy neighbor is HARD to do, often. :o)
