Pope Francis and the Renewal
Pope Francis came to a Catholic Charismatic Renewal conference in Rome, attended by around 50,000 people on June 1, 2014. He spoke to the crowd, praised God with them, and asked them to pray for him, which people did using the gift of tongues.
He told the charismatics, "Thank you. I feel at home with you." Read an overview of what he said, or the longer text here.
Pope Francis lifts his hands in praise and worship at 11:40 in this video of the conference, and at 20 minutes the people sing and pray in tongues. Read more at the Arlington Herald.
"God is always faithful to His promises, but He often surprises us in the way He fulfills them."
- Pope Benedict XVI, December 24, 2010, "Thought for the Day" on the BBC
