what the Pope says....
GOLDEN JUBILEE OF CATHOLIC RENEWAL

2017 marked the 50th anniversary of Catholic Charismatic Renewal. At a gathering in Rome in June, Pope Francis spoke to 50,000 people celebrating the Jubilee, referring to charismatic renewal as a "current of grace for the whole Church, not just for some."

He urged: "Share with everyone in the Church the Baptism in the Holy Spirit; praise the Lord without ceasing; walk together with Christians of different churches, in prayer and action for the most needy."
