"Relations to Other Charismatic Movements" section[edit]

This section definitely needs to be expanded.

Charismatic Catholics and Vatican II[edit]

I've heard that many Charismatic Catholics are critical of the reforms of the Second Vatican Council, particularly the use of the vernacular. Is this true, and if it is, can anyone provide a reference? --Saforrest 03:49, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Actually, I think the exact opposite is true. The reforms of the Second Vatican Council have allowed the Catholic Charismatic population to grow. To my knowledge and experience (with there being quite a few charismatic churches/priests/bishops in the Archdiocese of Miami) this statement is false. Aafm 23:29, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

EWTN reference biased?[edit]

I'd have to say the Colin Donovan reference about Paul VI is biased. He may have warned, but there are many stories of Paul VI's great support and his comments that I have heard were greatly in favor of the renewal. This lack of mention makes it seem that Paul VI was allowing it, but was only worried about. The reference to Cardinal Ratzinger now Benedict the XVI was about a famous interview with him, where the questions he was asked all dealt with the problems of the renewal. He finally added in on his own accord his belief in the goodness of the movement, which seemed to be a result of the questions asking about only negative characteristics of individuals within the renewal itself. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.251.135.226 (talk) 13:57, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

Charismatic Renewal changed my life[edit]

Just want to add a comment that being baptized in the Holy Spirit was a catalyst in my life. All who are baptized have the Holy Spirit dwelling in them, but what this prayer asks is that God stir that gift into flame. And He does not dissappoint. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 130.212.62.52 (talk) 19:36, 11 December 2008 (UTC)
