"When there is no prophecy in the people of God, the void it leaves is filled by clericalism: In fact it is this clericalism that demands of Jesus: ' By what authority do you do these things? By what law?'. And the memory of the promise and hope to move forward will be reduced only to the present: no past, no hopeful future. The present is legal: if it is legal you go forward.”
---Pope Francis, see Vatican Insider link.
The Gospels make the diagnosis. St. Paul views prophecy as the foremost charism. It all adds up biblically.
