From the early days, The Alton Day of Renewal has been blessed and guided by the charism or gift of prophecy. But what is prophecy? One simple definition is “a gift of speaking a message from God inspired by the Holy Spirit.”

The Catechism of the Catholic Church
CCC #66 “...even if Revelation is already complete, it has not been made fully explicit; it remains for Christian faith gradually to grasp its full significance over the course of the centuries”
CCC # 801 "... discernment of charisms is always necessary. No charism is exempt from being referred and submitted to the Church's shepherds. "Their office [is] not indeed to extinguish the Spirit, but to test all things and hold fast to what is good," [LG 12; cf. 30; 1 Thess 5:12, 19-21; John Paul II, Christifideles Laici, 24] so that all the diverse and complementary charisms work together "for the common good." [1 Cor. 12:7]
Prophecies quoted on this website have been discerned by the Core Group of Alton Day of Renewal and submitted to our Spiritual Director for further discernment.
