Do you if any Popes condemned Pentecostalism? My friends and I were involved in the Catholic NO Charasmatic movement for 25 years - my daughter graduated from Steubenville U. Now that I'm back in the Traditional Roman Catholic Church, I'd like to share what the Church has taught about this movement. Thanks for any info!
I’m not aware of any Popes who condemned it because it is a new phenomenon. But it is not traditional, it is ecumenical (involvement with Protestants and the Novus Ordo), so it must be rejected on that basis alone. Further, it involves things to which Catholics should naturally hold an aversion and recognize as not being Catholic and evil – e.g., speaking in gibberish, some even barking like dogs, and some even oinking like pigs. If your daughter is convinced of the Church’s traditional teaching on Outside the Church There is NO Salvation (please get our new book on this topic), and if she denounces all heretics, as well as the heresies of the Vatican II, John Paul II, etc., then she will naturally see that the Pentecostal movement is incompatible with the Traditional Catholic Faith.
