17:45
take this moment in silence and just listen listen to what god has prepared let's take this moment of silence and receive jesus amen amen carys is born officially on the day of pentecost 2019. carys is the new
19:05
and unique service for the catholic charismatic renewal as you know carys was erected by the will of the pope francis himself he wanted that the charismatic renewal would have a new service and to understand why we need to enter in the vision of the pope and that is what i will try to do in this talk
19:38
and also about the dream of the pope for the church but before to speak about that i want to underline some historical aspects that charles whitehead didn't develop in his wonderful first teaching so my first point is about the story here i want to develop
20:09
two points the first is about the ecumenical ruth of the charismatic renewal charles whitehead has clearly showed in his teaching that the charismatic renewal is born in the catholic church with a communicable rules let me underline a point that charles didn't develop
20:42
and that touched me a lot you remember that charles spoke about the pope leo the 13th who launched a novena to the holy spirit in his letter pravida matris what i discovered it is that the objective of the pope was not only to open the church to the holy spirit but also the unity of the christians
21:15
evidently in this time he spoke first about the unity of the catholic church but it was wider than that let me read some sentences he wrote in the language of this time evidently from this example of concord among catholics from this religious commitment to pray to the divine paraclete we can
21:46
greatly hope that this reconciliation with the dissident brother this is one of the words dated i should say so that the this reconciliation with the dissident brothers to which we have dedicated our efforts so that they too may feel themselves in themselves the sentiments which were in christ jesus participating one day with us in faith
22:17
and hope bound together by the most sweet bonds of perfect charity this story astonishes me always look how the holy spirit answered the prayer of the pope leo the 13th he was praying for a new effusion a new outpouring of the holy spirit on the 20th century and about the unity of the church the answer
22:52
of the holy spirit was to begin in the protestant churches and we had to wait the vatican council and the fantastic prayer of saint john the 23rd for a new pentecost on the church so that would be born in the in the church in the catholic church the charismatic renewal why do i tell you that
23:24
because this story shows what is called the ecumenical roots of the catholic charismatic renewal and pope francis is deeply convinced about that it takes part to his vision as we will see it later now i arrive to the second point of my introduction the renewal has a current of grace
23:55
let us go back to the story of the charismatic renewal in the catholic church charles whitehead spoke to us about one man who played a very important role to help the charismatic renewal to enter in the church and to be accepted by the church this man was the cardinal leon joseph sunins archbishop of mali in brussels and one of the three moderators
24:26
of the council vatican ii i had the occasion to know him and to work with him when i was young because he was my bishop he met the charismatic renewal in the united states and he contributed to introduce it in the church and in 1975 he led the big pilgrimage of the charismatic renewal in rome
24:58
and he presented it to the pope paul vi and it is there that saint paul paul vi said this historical sentence the charismatic renewal is the grace for the church then pope paul vi asked the cardinal humans to accompany the young charismatic renewal in the church and the cardinal did that
25:30
among other things publishing the marlin documents which are giving general guidelines for different subjects important for the charismatic renewal the central conviction of the cardinal students was that the charismatic renewal was not a movement but a current of grace pope francis has taken this conviction on board what does it mean
26:02
this is what i want to tell you because i heard it from the cardinal students himself at the beginning of the renewal in my country he was making the comparison between the renewal and the gulf stream which is this current of warm waters that is crossing the atlantic ocean and warms up the waters and gave to our countries in europe
26:32
their temperate climate he was saying in the same way that the gulf stream is warming up the atlantic ocean and then disappears when he has made his job in the same way the charismatic renewal needs to warm up all the church and disappear when he will have done his job which is to make that all the church would become charismatic
27:03
this conviction of the cardinal students was based on the fact that he was considering the baptism in the holy spirit that he was calling outpouring of the holy spirit he was convinced that it was a grace for all the baptized people and that all the baptized people were called to live it this is why the charismatic renewal for him was not a movement
27:34
in fact a movement is a group of faithful in the church living the same spirituality in consequence you are in a movement or not you are inside or outside so for instance i am a member of a community you are not others are members of the focularis or members of sante video others are
28:04
franciscans others are dominicans this is not the same for the charismatic renewal it is not a movement it is a current of grace indeed if the baptism in the holy spirit is for all the christians then the renewal cannot be considered as a movement to which you belong or not the charismatic renewal
28:34
is for all in this sense we can say that the charismatic renewal is above the movements i can be a member of the focularis or of santigidio and be baptized in the holy spirit i can be franciscan dominican jesuits and be baptized in the holy spirit i can be baptized in the holy spirit and not belong not not belonging to a
29:09
prayer group i can be baptized in the holy spirit and not to pray with my my hands like that the charismatic renewal is a current of grace simply because the baptism in the holy spirit is the actualization of the grace of our own sacramental baptism and this is what the cardinal pharaoh explained
29:40
to the brazilian bishop in last january he said why is the charismatic renewal such a current this is due to its very identity what characterizes the charismatic renewable is the experience of baptism in the holy spirit this experience can be received by any baptized person because it simply reflects baptism itself it can be
30:11
said that to receive baptism in the holy spirit is simply to live fully all the graces that we are received at one sacramental baptism in this sense the renewal is a current of grace from which everyone can benefit i arrive to my third point of my intro historical introduction the support of the popes as charles whited underlined it
30:46
strongly all the popes since paul vi supported strongly the charismatic renewal saint john paul ii received many times the leaders of the charismatic renewal and encourage them pope benedict xvi did the same he did it as cardinal prefect of the congregation for the doctrine of fate and then as pope we can say that since his birth
31:20
the charismatic renewal received a strong support from all popes but with the coming of pope francis this support has taken an incredibly larger dimension as we will see now in my second point the vision of pope francis to understand the vision of pope francis about the charismatic renewal we need to go back to his personal story
31:53
at the beginning as archbishop of buenos aires cardinal bergoglio was suspicious of the renewal he said publicly that he was considering the renewal as a samba school and even before as superior of the argentina jesuits he even forbade them to participate in the meetings of the renewal but when he discovered the grace of the charismatic
32:23
renewal from inside through the remarkable work of the leaders of the charismatic renewal in argentina cardinal bergoglio changed his mind and there was an important event that marks a turning point in the understanding of cardinal bergoglio for the charismatic renewal and the unity of the christian this is the economical meeting
32:54
in the lunar park of buenos aires in 2006 in this meeting asked the prayer of a group of evangelical pastors evangelical argentinian pastors well known in the country one italian pastor giovanni become a friend of the country the relation of the cardinal with the
34:11
renewal changed in such a way that when he met the leaders of the renewal in rome when he was the pope he spoke with them about the renewal saying us i think that we can say that pope francis feels part of the current of grace up to now we had popes sustaining the renewal today
34:44
we have a pope who feels himself part of the current of grace and this changes everything first point in my second point the vision of the pope it is the current of grace for all the church the first conviction in the vision of the pope about the charismatic renewal it is that following the cardinal students he considers
35:18
the charismatic renewal as a current of grace he said it many times and the consequence of that is the desire of the pope that all the christians would be touched by this current of grace and would receive the baptism in the holy spirit the pope has made different times references to that encouraging the charismatic renewal to spread the baptism in the holy spirit
35:51
asking to the parish priests to make the seminar in the life for the life in the spirit in their parish and finally giving to charis the task to make the baptism in the holy spirit noun in all the church the pope was very clear on this point on the pentacles 2019 he said i would ask you to share baptism in the holy spirit with everyone in the church it is the
36:23
grace you receive share it in recife in last june cardinal farrell said to the leaders of some charismatic communities the holy father pope francis considers all the members and all the expressions of the charismatic renewal as cooperators in his patron ministry this is wonderful but somebody
36:55
wanted to know what does it mean how can we be a support of the patron ministry of the pope cardinal farrell answered something like that you know the pope may not all the time speak about the baptism in the holy spirit and you understand well why but i can tell you that every time he speaks about new evangelization
37:28
evangelization meeting with jesus life conversion he is thinking to the baptism in the holy spirit this answer touched me a lot because it shows the deep wish of the pope about the charismatic renewal he is expecting a renewal of the christian life for all the baptized people
38:00
and he knows that this renewal will be the fruit of the experience of the baptism in the holy spirit this is the reason why he needs us members of the charismatic renewal to help him in this task here i want to say something very important after all what i just have said a human reaction could be pride we could be
38:38
proud to be member members of the charismatic renewal we could say in ourselves great we are charismatics we are the better in the world if we open the door to this temptation we are lost for the renewal to be able to respond to the pope's expectations he must be humble we are nothing without the holy spirit
39:09
we need to become small to let the holy spirit to work through us remember this terrible word of saint peter god resists the proud but it is to the humble that he gives his grace let us go now to the second point of the vision of pope francis on the renewal the communion
39:42
he was art bishop of buenos aires cardinal bergoglio discovered that the charismatic renewal was divided and even that you had raptures between prayer groups and communities inside of the renewal the prayer groups refused to recognize that the communities the charismatic communities were taking part to the renewal there were some interdictions for the members of the prayer group
40:13
to speak in the communities and so on cardinal bergoglio asked that that would stop and that they would live in communion and for that edie solved the national team of the charismatic renewal which was in fact only taking care of the prayer groups to create a new instance which would put together all the expressions of the current of grace
40:46
prayer groups communities school of evangelization tv networks and so on we have not to be surprised that when he became pope the holy father decided to promote the communion inside of the current of grace and this is why he asked to the leaders of the egress and the catholic fraternity to work for a new and unique service
41:18
for the renewal and this is how carys was born we can ask ourselves but why the pope has such big desire of communion i think the answer is very simple you understood that the pope is expecting a lot from the charismatic renewal and this is not
41:49
possible if the renewal is divided if the ones are rejecting the others or criticizing the one and the others if we want that the current of grace would be able to share the baptism in the holy spirit in all the church it is needed that the renewal would be united would live in communion and for that conversions are
42:23
requested from us for example in many countries there is already a structure taking care of the prayer groups which is called in general national theme of the charismatic renewal but they don't take care of all the charismatic renewal they take care only of the prayer groups so they are using the name of the whole reality for a part
42:55
we need to consider that the renewal is a current of grace with many expressions in which you have prayer groups but also communities ministries schools of evangelization editing houses tv network centers of prayer and so on and so in our countries instead of to speak about national team of charismatic renewal
43:26
we would need to say national team of the prayer groups of the charismatic renewal but don't forget that caris proposes also a national service of communion i will speak about later the third point in the vision of the pope is the unity of the christian this is a main aspect of the communion which is very important to the heart of the pope
43:59
the communion between the christians of different churches of different ecclesial communities we have seen that the roots of the charismatic renewal are ecumenical the pope is a man of unity and he is convinced that the experience of the baptism in the holy spirit can serve as a bridge between christians of different ecclesial communities how it is
44:30
not trying to solve theological problems the pope said one day that for that we would need to send all the theologians of the world on isolate island and let them work to the end of the times what the pope has in view when he speaks about unity it is what we can call relational ecumenism in other words
45:01
the communism of friendship mutual friendship we can become friends of christians of other ecclesial groups we can pray together we can broke the walls that we have built let me give one example there is a movement called john 17 which is very dear to the pope this movement is
45:34
founded by pastor and american pastor joe tossini and you will meet him during this formation the pope encountered the group john 17 several times and between them you had a baptist pastor very rigid when he came for the first time to the vatican to the meeting with the pope he was deeply touched when he came back for the second time he gave his
46:06
testimony in front of the pope he said something like that holy father i am a baptist pastor son of pastor son of pastor third generation in my church we are not considering the catholic church very well when i came here for the first time i was totally surprised nothing was all i was thinking it would be
46:38
i saw that my ideas about the catholic church were wrong back at whom in the united states i had to change my pastoral here we see in practice how the construction of relations can change a way to see the other this type of relational communism
47:08
we can do it every one of us we can do it we can search to become friends of other christians and this network of friendship can change things we can say in such a way that this is the construction of the unity from the bottom from the people of god another point important in the vision of the pope it is the service of the poor
47:40
this is the third line that the pope is underlining we know how the pope is attached to the little ones the sick the suffering the migrants the excluded he asked to the renewal to have the same love the same charity for the poor we are as charismatic we receive the outpouring of the holy spirit
48:12
and the holy spirit is love so normally because we are full of the holy spirit we would have to be burning weaknesses of love and i have to say that since one year i have seen very beautiful testimonies of charity inside of the renewal it is really wonderful i think to this young charismatic people
48:45
going on the street to leave with the homeless people in brazil or to these prayer groups in africa taking care of the prisoners and there are many other examples in this manner the pope is interpreting us and us in our prayer groups and our community how do we lead the charity for the poor
49:16
if we want to spread the baptism in the holy spirit we need to grow in the exercise of the love for the poor in summary pope francis has a big hope about the renewal he expects from it a help to transform the church through the experience of the baptism in the holy spirit spread widely in a spirit of unity
49:49
and charity now we can arrive to caris itself and to the novelty of carys this is my third point carys is born at the pentecost 2019 and you understood that it was the will of the pope himself caris is a service it is the unique service of the current of grace that is the charismatic renewal in the catholic church
50:22
let me underline some points the first one is the public legal personality that carries received from the holy see this is a technical term which needs some explanation in the church you have two types of associations the private ones and the public ones a private association is
50:53
serving its own members for instance the associations of the catholic jurists of italy is taking care of the jurists in italy but not of the teacher of the or of the doctors only its members a public association is erected by the church to serve all the baptized people and not
51:25
only its members giving to charis a public juridic personality the church has put caries in her heart and she shows through that that carries is not only to serve the members of the charismatic renewal but to serve all the baptized people and this is the consequence the clear consequence of what i developed
51:57
before it is to share the baptism in the holy spirit in the whole church second point caris is a service as a service carries as no member nobody can say i belong to carys caris is a service for the charismatic renewal but it doesn't identify with the renewal and so one of the consequences of that
52:28
it is that the moderator of caris is not the leader of the charismatic renewal as current of grace i am not that who is in charge of the current of grace the holy spirit and nobody else so caris proposes a service nobody is obliged to use this service we can compare carries to a gas station on the highway that offers many services
52:59
gasoline toilets rest area coffee picnic and so on when you arrive at the gas station on the highway you can stop or not it depends on your needs in the same way with carries you can use its service or not everybody is free and what are the services that carries proposes
53:29
first of all the communion caris is in charge to create the communion in the current of grace that is the charismatic renewal and for that the stages of caris are providing three groups i should say the first is the international service of communion the second the continental service of communion and the third one the national service of communion
54:01
you see that in every group two words are common service and communion in this national service of communion of caries it is us that all the expressions of the renewal in the country would be represented it is it means the prayer groups the communities the school of evangelization the editing houses the priests of the renewal the radio or the tv stations
54:34
ministries the center of prayer and so on and so on the holy spirit has a lot of imagination and the first objective of this national service of communion is to live the communion and then to serve there is a coordinator of the charis national service of communion caution he is not the responsible of the renewal i remember you that the only responsible
55:03
is the holy spirit the communion is also facilitated through the work of the office of rome the charis office of rome which is editing magazine news regularly this is a way to put all the renewal in contact and we are doing it in five languages you can ask it for free on the website of carries another remark
55:34
the existence of the national service of communion doesn't cancel the other services existing in one country so in particular if you had national themes of the renewal they can go on in the service they were giving but remember what i said before it is necessary to change their name and to call them national teams of the prayer groups of the charismatic renewal as i
56:06
explained before another service that carries proposes it is the formations for leaders for servant leaders in the charismatic renewal because i remember you that that pope francis asked that we would no more use the word leader but the word servant because as responsible we are serving the charismatic renewal we are the servants
56:36
there is also a formation for the prophetic intercession and formation for the exercise of the characterism i think that this last formation is very important that i it seems to me that in many countries there is a diminution of the exercise of the charism it is a pity and i don't think it is the will of the holy spirit it is necessary i think to awaken in us the zeal
57:06
for the exercise of charisms we are also preparing a formation for ecumenism and you see that you are taking part to another formation online formation for servant leaders with the worldwide crisis of the pandemic of the cavite 19 we are understanding that our proposal of formation has to be adapted to the new
57:37
circumstances and we are working on it to create new online formation that you will be able to follow from all around the world you can pray for that another service is for the communities caris proposes a service for the communities coming from the charismatic renewal it is first of all a service of communion because many
58:09
communities have the desire to know one another and to help one another through this communion caris wants to help also the communities to face some big challenges for instance how to avoid authority abuses how to evangelize the young people which is a priority for us as
58:40
charismatic members in these areas the sharing of experience between communities is very important caris proposes also a canonical help for the communities that have to draw up their status with a view to ecclesial recognition another service it is the young people carries has a special attention for the
59:11
youth and they have a special place a big place in our statutes for instance they are represented at every level national continental international this is a big challenge for the charismatic renewal today to evangelize the young people and for that we need to trust in them we need to give them responsibilities
59:43
that implies also that the actual leaders would let their responsibilities for the young ones this is the reasons why the mandates of caries at every level are of three years renewable one times only don't be afraid to give place to the young people i ask you a question when the holy
01:00:14
spirit wanted to begin the charismatic renewal in the catholic church where did he go in all people's home no he went in a university and the first leaders of the charismatic renewal were young people of 21 22 years old and instead of their inexperience the spread renewal in the entire world
01:00:45
in a few years the holy spirit has put his trust in young people let us do the same let us trust in them this implies humility on the part of many current leaders who must learn to withdraw as john the baptism was saying i need to decrease and he needs to grow another service is the
01:01:16
organization of big meetings carys is also in charge to organize meetings of communion for the all charismatic renewal a beautiful example was the prayer that we organized in the vigil of the last pentecost online for the world the entire world but uh we had also an international meeting of communities in recife in last january and the
01:01:48
pentecost in rome in 2019 the statutes are providing also that we would have every three years a general assembly of carries in which we will have the elections of the moderator and the members of the service the international service of communion let me arrive to my last point evangelization and holiness i want to say two words about these two realities which are
01:02:18
essential in the work of carys the pope asks us a renewal of the evangelization his call to spread the baptism in the holy spirit in the whole church is in fact a call to the mission we will not be faithful to this call if we not decide to become evangelizators remember what i said earlier
01:02:51
the pope associates the baptism in the holy spirit with the evangelization and there is another essential element holiness we could all see that the fact that we exercise the charisms even extraordinary charisms doesn't imply holiness we have seen unfortunately around us many
01:03:21
examples of founders who failed in this area one of the services of carries is to remember us that we are all called to holiness all what i said since the beginning can be resumed by the word holiness holiness will push us to live communion charity evangelization unity of the christian that jesus
01:03:52
desires so much holiness will help us to put at their just place the charisms in the humility of the service of the church holiness is the fruit of the action of the holy spirit because the holy spirit is the one who makes us holy let us allow ourselves to be led by the holy spirit that is what it means to be truly charismatic
01:04:24
i come to my conclusion we entered in a new step of the story of the charismatic renewal with the coming of pope francis the doors of the church are widely open to the renewal this is a sign of the holy spirit and the holy spirit is asking us are you ready to follow me to make noun around you the marvelous grace that i gave to you the baptism
01:04:54
in the holy spirit i have chosen you as my messengers i open for you the doors of the church so go and let be known all what you received from me dear friends dear brothers and sisters the world is expecting a new pentecost god needs us to be his instruments don't be
01:05:27
afraid here we are oh lord to do your will [Music] um [Music] you
