THE EUCHARIST is “the source and summit of the Christian life.” (Catechism, 1324)

Then it could be said that everything in between–the steps leading up this Blessed Mountain–are the charisms of the Holy Spirit, with “prophecy” being the handrails.

Prophecy “means the foreknowledge of future events, though it may sometimes apply to past events of which there is no memory, and to present hidden things which cannot be known by the natural light of reason.” (Catholic Encyclopedia).

Pursue love, but strive eagerly for the spiritual gifts, above all that you may prophesy.(1 Cor 14:1)
