[quote=Peace Pilgrim]Would you kindly explain your comments?
What is the key?
There are I’m sure other newbies to the faith who frequent (and lurk) this forum who would find this cryptic.
And why the ?? after Charismatic movement?
And be nice, netmilsmom. I’ve taken the time to read your past posts. Fr. Corapi had something very interesting to say about a certain tongue.
Love is the surest sign of a Christian. If Christ is living in our heart, we will love our fellow believers, whether or not they hold hands during the Our Father.
Now, since I have found out about my sister coming out of ICU after knee replacement, I can answer your question.
First let me say that perhaps you should spend a little more than a month her before you begin to admonish people about being nice or judging their motivations as happened here and on the other thread. Be silent and learn is always a good motto. You will learn much about the love we have for each other as Catholics and how even some of the most heated debates are between the best of friends. On everyone of these handholding threads, I debated a certain poster. We stand far from each other in ideals, yet I respect him more than anyone can know. THAT is because we love each other.
Read, learn and you will see.
The reason why I equated the Charistmatics with the Franciscans is because I had heard that much of the movement was perpetuated by them. Do you know how to use Google? That is a real question and being kind. A quick Google search gave me this information.
The poster I was replying to stated that she was in Southern Ohio. The Charismatic movement was at one time very big at Franciscan University in Steubenville, OH (my Uncle is the Bishop Emeritus there). She is not far from it and stated that the parishes that do hold hands are run by Franciscans. Therefore, noting that handholding is very big in the Charismatic movement, I saw a correlation.
I’m sure you find peace with this answer.
