Dear Brothers and Sisters of the Charismatic Renewal,


The CHARIS Magazine is getting a makeover. We will now offer you a more lively, monthly, digital version with videos and short articles that you can also find on our website. In this edition, we invite, in particular, all young people of the Charismatic Renewal around the World to participate in the great Vigil of Prayer and Praise which is entitled “Created 4 greatness”. The theme is the holiness. This initiative was born from the large number of young people who participated in the CHARIS Pentecost vigil in the past.

Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa will be with us, along with the mother of Carlo Acutis, whose beatification will be held on October 10, 2020, Martin Valverde … and many others. Also, we want to offer you the LOGOS Seminar which is an opportunity to learn how to preach in the Charismatic Renewal.

In this time of pandemic, how does one exercise charisms? See Cyril John’s proposal for an answer.

How did the third Malines document come about? We put that question to Fr. Wilfred Brieven who is the secretary of Cardinal Suenens.

 Good reading!
