Golden Jubilee... Rome... Overview Report
The worldwide Catholic Charismatic Renewal gathered in Rome to celebrate its Golden Jubilee. More than merely a nostalgic look backwards, there was an anticipation for the days ahead. ICCRS exists to serve the worldwide charismatic family and, having many Charismatic realities, celebrating together in one place was an expression of the Pastoral heart of ICCRS. There was also a clearly ecumenical focus, initiated by Pope Francis himself! Present on stage for the Saturday evening Pentecost Vigil event with Pope Francis were some of our Protestant brothers and sisters. It was a visual picture of the ICCRS commitment to Ecumenism.
The Golden Jubilee was described as both an historic and prophetic moment as the Renewal gathered to seek the wisdom and the grace of God in order to live and work in a new season of Pentecost. Sadly, due to security concerns throughout Europe, Italian authorities did not grant visas to all our brothers and sisters. However, it is hoped to share with them through the written word and social media, the fruit of this amazing event.
