From Fr. Bob Hogan, BBD:  This is a lot of material, but if you want to know clearly what Pope Francis is saying about Catholic Charismatic Renewal, this gives you a lot of information.  Those of us involved in Charismatic Renewal need to be able to pass this information on to our priests and others in the Church who do not understand Charismatic Renewal very well and do not know what Pope Francis has been saying about it.  Especially look at 1) The “What is CHARIS” section; 2) Pope Francis’ address about CHARIS; and 3) Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa’s presentation (recently made a Cardinal).

CHARIS Magazine Special Edition



Dear friends,

After two years of the birth of CHARIS, we believe it necessary to dedicate an extraordinary number of our Magazine to the origin, constitution and development of this new unique service to the Catholic Charismatic Renewal, created by the express will of the Holy Father. 

We encourage you to read this issue carefully, to spread the news and we invite you to write to us at: info@charis.internacional in case questions arise.

Enjoy this issue!
