Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]   A[4]  

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

A[1] Whether counsel should be reckoned among the seven gifts of the Holy Ghost?

A[2] Whether the gift of counsel corresponds to prudence?

A[3] Whether the gift of counsel remains in heaven?

A[4] Whether the fifth beatitude, "Blessed are the merciful," etc. corresponds to the gift of counsel?
