Charismatic Renewal
Heaven Speaks Today, No.

Important info in 3 minutes (or less)

HE Catholic Charismatic Renewal (CCR) is only a recent phenomenon. It began in 1967 at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Penn., when two Catholic faculty members received “baptism in the spirit” at a local Protestant Pentecostal gathering and in the process violated Church law which forbade Catholics from participating in non-Catholic worship or ceremonies.


The CCR then spread like wildfire across the U.S. and the globe, fueled by the misguided enthusiasm of many priests, bishops, and cardinals. It’s a real eye-opener to the power the forces of darkness wield today when representatives of Christ supposedly well-trained in theology could be taken in by a movement that is totally incompatible with sacred Tradition, and still has no official Church approbation.
       Indeed, as Jesus and Mary have solemnly warned here, this is a very dangerous and yes, diabolical movement that has been concocted by the evil one to “deceive even the elect” (St. Matt. 24.24).
       Although there are many good and well-intentioned adherents in the CCR, frankly, there’s little Catholic about it. Anyone with a cursory knowledge of their catechism should see major problems.
       Space does not permit a detailed analysis but “baptism in the spirit,” speaking in unknown tongues (a classic sign of diabolical possession), reckless ecumenism, a false concept of grace and a failure to test the spirits are just a few of the serious problems.

UFFICE IT TO SAY, WE have Christ’s promise from
the first Pentecost of the abiding presence of the Holy Spirit in the Church: yesterday, today, forever. What need then is there for this silliness of the “baptism in the spirit,” the core component of the CCR?! It doesn’t square with the Church’s teaching.
       In fact, Pope Paul VI did condemn the CCR in various addresses from 1969-1974. And He could not have been any clearer. For example, in 1969, he denounced “the illusion of a free and charismatic Christianity” which “does not build, but demolishes.” In 1972, he warned that if their erroneous thinking were to gain ascendency within the Church, it would be tantamount to a direct attack upon “the very existence of the Church,” leading to “extinguishing the real flame of Pentecost, disregarding the thought of Christ and of the whole of Tradition.”

UT THEN IN 1975, “Pope Paul” in perhaps the most sensational flip-flop by a pontiff in the history of the Church, shockingly appeared to give an endorsement at the CCR International Conference in Rome with his performance in St. Peter’s Basilica.


But not so! Here is dramatic evidence that supports Our Lady’s stunning revelation in 1975 that good Pope Paul was laid low and replaced by an actor/impostor by a triumvirate of evil cardinals who had seized the papacy.
       This was a masterstroke by the prince of darkness—remember, Our Lady has stressed that the spiritual Armageddon is raging now—because Pope Paul’s apparent new stance unquestionably misled John Paul II, who (as a private theologian) would then lend considerable support to the CCR, though often urging caution.

E EARNESTLY PRAY for our dear brothers and sisters in the CCR that they will receive this crucial information and these timely words of Jesus and Mary in the manner in which they were intended: to instruct, to warn, to edify and finally, to remove themselves from this dangerous diversion and (re)claim that centuries-old practice of praying
the daily Rosary: “Realize the power in your hand with the Rosary, for in your hands you hold the power of God”
(Our Lady, Oct. 6, 1970).

In good faith
“Though their hearts may have started with good intent, this novelty and experimentation —My children, I assure you, what you are calling ‘Pentecostals’ and calling down upon you the ‘Spirit,’ it is a devious and insidious evil created by satan to take away from you the knowledge and the need for the institutionalized Church.”
Jesus, May 20, 1978

Flee from gatherings
“Many call upon the Holy Spirit, My child, but the spirits they invoke are not from Heaven and the light. They come up fast from the abyss. Flee! Have no part of these gatherings, for they are not from the light. In time, My children, you will evidence the disasters that these gatherings provoke. Many who should know better have given themselves over to this diversion. You need not this diversion. My Son is always with you in the Eucharist.”
Our Lady, June 15, 1974

New world order
“My children, understand what is happening now. It is the work of Lucifer using human agents to remove all institutionalized churches from your world and unite all of mankind in the name of peace and brotherhood under one roof—and it will be a one-world religion and a one-world government.”
Our Lady, November 25, 1978

Clergy backlash
“You will meet with much disapproval by many of Our clergy. I prepare you for this, for many have fallen into the web of satan, not recognizing these gatherings of Pentecostals for what they truly are: a creation to distort and deceive.”
Our Lady, June 15, 1974

“Voices in the millions cry, ‘love, love,’ reaching up in Charismatic renewal of what, My children? They implore the Spirit. Why do they not implore My Son in the Eucharist?... “Will you stand before Him, O clergy, and say that you have prophesied for Him? And what did you do but bring in doctrines of devils into My Son’s House! He shall take you in your defilement and cast you into the eternal fires of hell.”
Our Lady, April 9, 1977

No instant Spirit
“You who call upon the Spirit forcefully command the spirit of darkness, the prince of darkness, to send his agents into you. You are treading where angels would fear to go, My children. You cannot force the Spirit to come to you. It is a gift given at the discretion of the Eternal Father. Stop now your meandering into regions of darkness.”
Our Lady, June 18, 1976

“Many have given themselves to disobedience of your Holy Father, your Vicar. We have asked him to condemn the practice of calling upon the Spirit. He has followed the direction of the Father, but many of his clergy have fallen into disobedience of your Vicar.”*
Our Lady, June 15, 1974

*One of the most notorious repeat offenders was the “great friend and champion” of the CCR, Leo Joseph Cardinal Suenens (1904-1996). It doesn’t speak well of the movement when its most influential voice was an open dissenter of Humanae Vitae and a militant proponent of collegiality (reducing substantively the Pope’s authority), radical ecumenism, wholesale updating of the religious life, including stripping the nun of her habit, and opening the debate on women/married priests. His well-publicized and brazen disobedience would eventually result in a searing rebuke from Pope Paul in 1971, which Suenens described as “the worst half-hour of my life.” He was one of four cardinals exposed by St. Michael: “You will pray for them.... Their souls wallow in sin. They are blinded, and they are misleading those under their rule” (Aug. 21, 1974).

“The prayers from Heaven are simple. Do not go searching for the sensational, for you will start your prayers always with: Our Father, Who art in Heaven..., not bla bla bla bla bla bla that We hear, My child, coming up here.”
Our Lady, June 15, 1974

“When the Eternal Father permitted His Apostles to speak in tongues, it was knowledgeable to all, of the tongue, what they were speaking about. They did not go about babbling idly.”
Our Lady, May 28, 1977

A renewal?!
“You rebuild My Church. For what? A renewal? And what are you renewing? What is your renewal? What are you renewing? Have you found fault with My way?”
Jesus, February 1, 1978

The bottom line
“For the way of the cross is the true road to the Kingdom.”
Jesus, June 18, 1981
