Of the Gift of Counsel

We must now consider the gift of counsel which corresponds to prudence. Under this head there are four points of inquiry:

  1. Whether counsel should be reckoned among the seven gifts of the Holy Ghost?
  2. Whether the gift of counsel corresponds to prudence?
  3. Whether the gift of counsel remains in heaven?
  4. Whether the fifth beatitude, "Blessed are the merciful," etc. corresponds to the gift of counsel?
