The Catholic Charismatic Renewal of Our Lady of Loretto celebrated their 28th Anniversary celebration on Thursday, October 21, 2021 at 7pm starting with a mass of thanksgiving. They then meet in the basement to share a talk on a Marian theme presented by Deacon Juan Perez.
What we learn in the New Testament on charism, which appeared as visible signs of the coming of the Holy Spirit, is not a historical event of the past, but a reality ever alive. It is the same divine Spirit, soul of the Church, that acts in every age and those mysterious and effective interventions of the Spirit are manifest in our time in a providential way. The Movements and New Communities are like an outpouring of the Holy Spirit in the Church and in contemporary society. We can, therefore, rightly say that one of the positive elements and aspects of the Community of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal is precisely their emphasis on the charisms or gifts of the Holy Spirit and their merit lies in having recalled their topicality in the Church.Pope Benedict XVI
