Beg to differ - again. Are you claiming that the charisms are not in the catechism?
Are you trying to put words in my mouth? I have maintained that speaking in "unknown tongues" as practiced in some modern Charismatic communities is not authentically Catholic, as it originates within protestantism. You cannot find it mentioned in the Catechism or any offical Church document.
This does not include other charisms, such as healings and prophesy, which have been in continuous practice in the Church since the beginning. But tounges have not. The Catholic Church does not inherit legitimate theology from protestants.
The Catholic Charismatic Renewal is 100% Church approved for those who have an interest in deepening their faith via use of the charisms.
I'm not sure what you mean by "approved." The Church has never officially approved of this practice of speaking in tongues. I'm not talking about the "Catholic Charismatic Renewal" - I am talking about tongues (which, concidentally, is what the OP asked about). Unfortunately, it seems impossible to separate the two - I see why you get it mixed up, thinking they are the same thing.
For those who prefer information to opinion, here are two links.
Ah, yes, the NSC. A lay orginization. It's charter has been sanctioned by Rome. However, the charter does not mention speaking in tongues, nor could you prove from the NSC website that such a charism actually exists - it is not mentioned anywhere. Remember, I'm talking about tongues, not the Charismatic movement (though I can see why you get them mixed up). There's nothing whatsoever on NSCs website or in their charter that I find objectionable. Because the NSC is simply a veneer of orthodoxy for some unorthodox practices (speaking in tongues).
Ah, another website that does not mention speaking in tongues! (well, in a personal testimony, one person who attended the Duquesne weekend retreat (where "Charismatic Catholicism" was first invented in, umm, 1967) says that other people were speaking in tongues, but not her. That's as close as the site gets to mentioning it.)
Charismatics sure do have a lot of websites that don't mention speaking in tongues. Too bad they don't have one single worship service that excludes this activity. Don't you think it's kinda odd that it is done at each and every Charismatic worship service, and yet there is absolutely no mention of it on Charismatic websites??? They make no secret of other things that happen in these services.
Please note that the preacher of the Papal household, Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa, is a charismatic Priest.
Yes, I've heard that also (not that it matters). Funny he doesn't mention it on his personal website (or on his old site (link at top of new site) which has more biographical info). I've never seen verifiable evidence to support this claim (I was hoping that you would provide a link - alas). He's on an ecumenical outreach committee to protestant pentacostal churches - maybe that's what you meant to say. At any rate, even if he were a "charismatic priest" that doesn't mean he speaks in tongues (though I can see how you would automatically assume that a "Charismatic priest" speaks in tongues - it's an easy mistake to make).
I have no objection to "Charasmatics." That's just a label. It's what they DO that is disturbing.
(forgive any spelling errors - at the moment I'm on an old Linux box with no spell-checker plugin, and I'm a horrible speller).
