    Fr., What is your stance/view concerning the Charismatic Renewal or Charismatic Prayer groups held within the Catholic Church? My local Church has a weekly group meeting during the Saturday evening Mass in a hall next to its house. I have emailed the parish to express my concerns about the group. I know a work colleague who attends this group & says he doesn’t always attend Mass. At work he brags about his Bible like it is his most important treasure, and quotes parts of the Bible to argue and defend his views. After Palm Sunday Mass, when exiting Church I passed the hall along with another parishioner and we looked up in astonishment to observe a member of the group being very animated and shouting. My work colleague doesn’t seem to believe in aspects of the RC Church including some of the sacraments. He said that he used to be a former seminarian and a Charismatic Catholic. I’d be most grateful and interested to hear your views.

    1. Hi Kenny, your worries are justified. There are many good Catholic charismatic groups. It is important that the priest of your parish be aware of what’s happening in your own prayer group and must have his approval regarding the fidelity to the Catholic doctrine of what is being taught during these meetings. Otherwise, if the teachings are against the Magisterium, the consequences for the spiritual well-being of the attendees would be nefarious, as what you have described in your comments. You would be doing a great favor to these souls if you bring up the matter to your priest asap. Take care and God bless!
