Greetings Tru Devtion
I am sincerely sorry that your experience with Charismatic Renwal in the Church was so unpleasant for you.
However, it has been a place for great Spiritual growth for many of us.
Often the things we post, appear to reflect the feelings and teachings of Holy Mother Church, the Holy Father, and the Bishops. When this happens, we could be hampering some of our Catholic brothers and sisters from following urgings from the Holy Spirit and perhaps in this way, preventing them from experiencing a closer walk with the Lord at a time when they have needed it most.
I lost part of my lung to lung cancer this past March, followed by 7 weeks of Radiation therapy. I am very grateful for the support and prayers for healing from the Charismatic Community. In my particular situation, my fellow parishioners didn’t call, visit or show any personal concern. My Pastor and our Deacons knew of my illness. When I finally was able to see these folks and asked for prayer, I was assured that I would be prayed for. The Charismatic folks who heard about my situation, called and visited me. They didn’t say they would pray for me, but immediately did just that. They also offered Masses for my recovery. Pretty special in my eyes.
This is only one of the things I am talking about when I say there are folks who might need a deeper Spiritual walk at this time. I have seen marriages healed, parents helped when their Children were in crisis and so many other things.
I do not say it is wrong for you to express your opinions. However, since the Charismatic Renewal, Cursillo, World Wide Marriage Encounter and other movements in the Church have been approved and encouraged by the Church, I urge you not to make strong, sweeping statements that might stifle the move of the Holy Spirit.
I know you are sincere, and I implore you with respect and Christian love.
