As described in the passage cited in the question, the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit as enumerated by St. Paul are as follows:

a message of wisdom (guidance from God about how to apply the knowledge that you have about something to a given situation) 

a message of knowledge (information, insight, or understanding from God about a particular subject)

faith (extraordinary confidence in God’s promises, power, and presence that enables an individual to take a heroic stand for the future of God’s work in the church)

gifts of healing (either the performance of dramatic or miraculous healings, or the understanding and application of medical science to an extraordinary degree or in an extraordinary manner)

miraculous powers (a supernatural display by an individual of God's power over spirits -- such as the casting out of demons -- or the ability to perform acts such as resurrecting the dead, or exerting control over natural forces)

prophecy (receiving a message directly from God to impart to others)

distinguishing between spirits (the ability to determine whether a seemingly supernatural manifestation is from God, or a false sign not proceeding from Him)

speaking in different tongues (either the ability to speak in a language that the speaker does not know, or to be understood by an individual who speaks a language other than the one that the speaker is using) 

the interpretation of different tongues (the ability to interpret or translate words spoken by another, even if those words are in a language that the interpreter has never spoken or studied)
