Profound Openness to the Holy Spirit

The Charismatic Dimension of our Spirituality

(The next few blog posts in The Bedardian will focus on the Holy Spirit)

Community PrayerOur spirituality is founded on four pillars: Eucharistic, Charismatic, Marian, Magisterial

“We believe that ‘the miracle of Pentecost should continue in history,’ (Pope Paul VI, 17 October, 1974) and, hence, we desire to be completely and fully empowered by the Father through the Holy Spirit, and to receive all the spiritual gifts, or ‘charisms’, that he may wish to bestow on us, including the Corinthian gifts (cf. 1 Cor 12:8-10).” (Constitutions and Rules of the Companions of the Cross, R51.1)

“Profound openness to the Holy Spirit, the power of God, and various ministry gifts through which the Church is empowered; a strong conviction that God desires to touch and inflame the lives of all His people.”  (Lay Associates Pamphlet, p. 4)
