After much studying, I have come to embrace the Catholic church. Being baptized Catholic, but raised Protestant, I had much to research, but am coming to understand that Catholicism is the only way for me. But, after reading posts on the Spirituality forum, I am now confused–charismatic Catholic churches with tounges? There are entire Protestant churches based on this least of the spiritual gifts. There are several rules in the Bible with regard to speaking in tounges. Are there interpreters in these charismatic Catholic churches?
One of the many truths about Catholicism that I am beginning to love is that the Church and Mass is unified. After reading the posts on charismatic Catholic churches, it looks a little like Protestantism–if you don’t like this church, keep hopping until you find one that suits you. This will not deter me from RCIA and becoming a Catholic, although it is a little confusing. I’m sure Mass is still celebrated the same as it should be, however, I find the idea of mixing charismatic characteristics with a reverent Mass a little hard to accept. But, I joined this forum for answers, so if I’m off base here, set me straight.
